On December 24th, instead of celebrating Christmas as usual, I will start a visit to China. I hope to be there for almost a month, until the middle of January. I am curious of this country so large in space (it is very large and populated) and time (it is very ancient, and seems determined to loom large in the future), and I would like to know more about it. I’m going to set up camp in Shanghai, but I hope to visit also Beijing, Shenzhen and Hong Kong.
I would like to take advantage of this trip to meet interesting people who live in China, be they Chinese or expatriate “foreign devils” (apparently that’s what they call us) and share a few thoughts with them. I would be mostly delighted to hook up with experts on regional development and creative industries, especially if involved in making policy. If you could put me in touch with someone like that in those cities, I would be very grateful. You can find me in all major social networks (except Baidu, I need to get in there) or by email at alberto[at]cottica[dot]net.
