China?s public image, role in world economic growth examined

A forum was held Thursday to examine the new developments in China and its implications for the U.S. and the world.

The lecture, ‘Reimagining China’, was held Nov. 13 at Sierra Hall and explored China’s public image as seen by CSUN’s Chinese scholars.

‘ ‘China’s role in the world is increasing due to its rapid economic growth and its increasing integration with the world economy,’ said Yifei Sun, an associate professor of geography and the forum’s organizer. ‘China has benefited greatly from its integration with the world, and China has made great contributions to the world economy.’

Anthropology assistant professor Dr. Suzanne Scheld, religious studies assistant professor Dr. Mutumbo Nkulu-Nsengha and Sun examined the effects of globalization on China and presented the emergence of a Chinese trading community in Daker, Senegal.’ They also discussed the problems raised by the recent massive intervention of China in the political and economic affairs of Central Africa and the extent and scope of foreign research and development investments in China.

‘The world economy has benefited from China’s cheap and quality products, and the world will continue benefiting from China’s recently announced rescue plan of about $600 billion,’ said Sun. ‘China will import more, which definitely will help the world economy to come out of the crisis sooner.’

Health science professor Dr. Louis Rubino, art assistant professor Dr. Meiqin Wan, and management professor Dr. Mingfang Li presented the current health care infrastructure in China, Chinese art emerging as a category of great interest in the international art world and the evolution of Chinese company strategies over the last 30 years.

‘Chinese firms are actively interacting with the global players and learning from them while improvising their strategies,’ said Li.

The forum highlighted that the cultural exchange between the United States and China would be more important in current globalizing world.

‘I think some Americans still feel that the U.S. is the No. 1 superpower in the world, and they don’t necessarily need to learn from other people in other countries,’ said Dr. Zhixin Su, director of CSUN’s China Institute.

‘Countries like China and Japan now seem to have or can offer more resources for young people to go abroad to study,’ said Dr. Su. ‘But it is difficult for a U.S. public university like CSUN to come up with enough funds to offer student for travel and study abroad.’
