Dean McConnaughay Invited Guest on CGTN’s “World Insight”

STL Dean Philip McConnaughay was an invited guest on a special “Town Hall” episode of CGTN’s “World Insight,” a television program hosted by journalist TianWei that explores global affairs and stories making headlines in China. Dean McConnaughay was joined by fellow guests Professor Hai Wen, one of China’s leading development economists and current Dean of Peking University HSBC Business School, and Dr. Victor Gao, an international relations expert and personal interpreter for Deng Xiaoping. The guests exchanged ideas about China’s economic development and current challenges facing the Communist Party of China (CPC).

The program also included a Q&A with the audience.  Several STL students attended the Town Hall and asked questions during the Q&A.

The program originally aired on October 16, 2017.  For more information about the Town Hall, please visit here.
