Magnet China
Dialog Series on the Occasion of the Year of Chinese Culture in 2012

The Federal Republic of Germany and the People’s Republic of China are celebrating 40 years of diplomatic relations in 2012, the Chinese Year of the Dragon. As part of this celebration, the Chinese Ministry of Culture is organizing events across Germany focused on the relationship between the two countries. The Bertelsmann Foundation, the Körber Foundation, and the Robert Bosch Stiftung - three private, politically independent foundations engaged in dialog with China - are also working together to offer their own contribution to the Year of Chinese Culture celebration in Germany.

At these events, experts from China and Germany will discuss opportunities and challenges facing their countries in the 21st century. What expectations and hopes are associated with China’s resurgence in the 21st century? Which direction is China’s compass pointing? How can Germany find its bearings among magnetic fields that both attract and repel? These and other questions will be discussed at the events held throughout Germany between January and November.
