We would like to invite you to the “China Insight” Trek this coming August, with a focus on China’s rural country development & agriculture sector.
Held by World Youth Development Forum, “China Insight” Trek aims to offer students 360 degree view of China through structured visit. In the past 10+ years, we visited the State Council, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Commerce, Development and Reform Commission, the Bank of China, Alibaba, Didi, etc. We also met many high-level state and business leaders, such as the Vice Premier of PRC, the Governor of People’s Bank of China, Vice President of Alibaba, Vice President of China Development Bank; etc.
Please check out a video introduction of WYDF “China Insight” Trek 2016 throughhttp://english.cri.cn/12394/2016/03/31/4201s922586.htm and a video sharing from our former trekker Michael He of Harvard College at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cv-0vAqF_g if you are interested.
Each “China Insight” Trek has different theme and focus. 2017 August’s “China Insight” Trek’s theme is “Fast Developing Rural Countries”. It will start on August 9th in Beijing and finish on August 22th in Jinhua. During the 14-day trip, we will spend the first few days in Beijing to get to know central government and its policy, and spend the rest time in Jinhua, a rural country in Zhejiang province, to get first-hand experience of China’s rural country development.
This trek will combine a good amount of high-level official events and rural country entities visit with typical cultural and leisure activities, such as visiting historical places of interests. You will have the opportunity to interact with a diverse range of people and get an insider’s perspective of the "real" China, especially its developing strategy.
Just to give you a quick taste of what you will get:
• Interaction with high-level Chinese government officials
• In-depth economics & policy seminar with top-notched academics and businessmen
• Onsite visit to private enterprises and rural countries in China
• Chinese family visit & dinner
• World-renowned tourist attractions: the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and the West Lake
• Authentic local delicacies: Peking duck and Zhejiang delicacies
• 1 on 1 Chinese study buddy to help you understand China better
English-speaking tour guides will be available during the trip. In addition, we will pair 1 trekker with 1 Chinese student to help you know China better in Jinhua.
The cost of the trip, which is generously partially subsidized by our local hosts, is about $2000 per person, which NOT includes international flight, but includes meals, domestic transportation, double occupancy at hotels, tips to tour guides, attraction tickets, etc. You are also required to obtain your visa to China (about $140 for US citizens, US$30 for non-US citizens), and purchase any necessary medical / emergency insurance.
Our application deadline is 11:59 PM on April 30th, 2017. To ensure a high-quality experience, we intend to limit the number of attendees.
