Dr. Khalid Malik has been appointed as UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative in China since August 2003. He came to UBC meeting with China specialists and delivered a well-attended lecture. As one of the department head mentioned, every department at UBC has some projects related to China going on.

China has made greatest sustained economic expansion in human history by not following the policies that others made. Dr. Malik thinks that China has strong institutions gradually changing to meet the reform needs. He mentioned about social capital and strong cohesion thanks to historic equality. Sadly, China has become the most unequal society in the world.
