MDC Further Builds Ties With China

Enhancing existing partnerships with Chinese government agencies, learning institutions and organizations, Miami Dade College recently held several events to expand upon the College’s accomplishments in recent years to increase ties with China through many diverse projects, which have ranged from training Chinese air traffic controllers and hospitality and human-resources executives to hosting Chinese Fulbright Scholars.

Making the World Safer

MDC’s North Campus recently hosted an all-day seminar for members of the Narcotics Control Group from the Chinese Ministry of Public Security. The delegation, led by Xufu Chen, the ministry’s deputy director general of Narcotics Control, learned about U.S. narcotics procedures, including drug control, money laundering and cooperation between agencies.

Hosted by MDC’s School of Justice, in collaboration with the Office of International Education, the seminar included participation and interaction between the Chinese delegates and various federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.

MDC’s School of Justice is renowned for being a national model of excellence and best practices.

Creating Business Opportunities

MDC’s Confucius Institute at the Wolfson Campus was the presenting sponsor for the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce’s conference on China Business 2010: Expanding Opportunities for Miami Companies.

Held at the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Miami, the conference included a seminar in the morning and speakers throughout the day. The Honorable Zhang Yesui, China’s ambassador to the United States, spoke at the event.

“A lot of companies were represented that are already actively engaged in trade with China,” said MDC Confucius Institute Director Xuejun “Jim” Yu.

In addition, vital information was provided on untapped investment opportunities to novices hoping to enter the rapidly growing market in China.

Studying in China

This summer, MDC’s School of Business is offering a study abroad program to China called “Economic Awakenings: China.” Students will attend classes at the Songjiang Campus of Shanghai-Lixin University of Commerce, and economics courses will be taught in English by MDC School of Business Professor Dr. Robert Foran.
