Day two in China was outstanding! Spent the day at Sun Yat-Sen University, presenting with the Montana Tech crew to faculty, administration and students, to an enthusiastically welcome response. Fact: Sun Yat-Sen U is the No.8 ranked university in China and has over 55,000 students! It is an honor and a privilege for Butte and Montana Tech to be forging global relationships with partners of this standing.
Day three: Sending the day with Zhuhai City Polytechnic administration, faculty and staff was impressive and humbling at the same time. The ZCPT is a top-notch trade school that plays a vital role in meeting the work force needs of one of the world's burgeoning economic atmospheres in south China. The hospitality and vigor with which we were treated by President Liu and his staff was beyond compare. Butte's connection to south China, particularly the Guangdong province, runs deep as a majority of our Mining City's first Chinese American families came from this region. We could not be served with greater enthusiasm nor optimism than from our new friends in Zhuhai at both ZCPT and Sun Yat-Sen.
