Ambassador Liu @ UCL
On Friday 28 January 2011 His Excellency the Chinese Ambassador visited UCL as the guest of the university's President & Provost, Professor Malcolm Grant.
During the visit the Ambassador spoke to a packed audience of UCL staff and students in the historic Gustave Tuck lecture theatre. The subject of his presentation was Building a Harmonious China-West Relationship. The Ambassador then took questions from the audience.
After his presentation, and accompanied by Madam Hu, the Ambassador asked to see some of the rare and beautiful Chinese books and engravings that form part of UCL Library's Special Collections, as well as some of the precious Old Master prints and works by alumni of the UCL Slade School of Fine Art, which are held in the UCL Art Collection.
The Ambassador's visit concluded with a speech to more than 300 UCL staff and students from China and their UCL friends, at the university's Chinese New Year reception.
Building a Harmonious China-West Relationship
The subject of the Ambassador's address to a packed Gustav Tuck lecture theatre was the relationship between China and the U.S - commonly regarded as the tone setter in China's relations with the West as a whole.
