Responding To: A Reflection on Participation in the Research Group on Climate Change

Building Bridges and Increasing Understanding

Qi Shaozhou

First of all, the dialogues in Washington have brought me into contact with people from policy,
business and academic fields in the United States, from which I have learned about the environment in the United States as well as issues of interest from different perspectives. For those of us who are studying the U.S.-China relationship, this is precious first-hand information. From the dialogues, conversations and discussions, I increased my understanding of the hot and trending topics in the United States, which is a rewarding experience for me. Secondly, through this research group we have made some good friends here, including Professor Billy Pizer from Duke University. Currently, one scholar from my team is conducting a one-year research project at Duke University. I believe their research together will be fruitful. This channel of cooperation is beneficial, especially for young scholars in China. On one hand, they are producing research results from their collaborative research. On the other hand, after these visiting Chinese scholars return to China, they can inspire other young scholars.
