The Forum for American/Chinese Exchange at Stanford (FACES) has invited Shaun Rein, Managing Director of the China Market Research Group (CMR), to speak at its annual conference to be held from November 13th-November 17th at Fudan University. The conference is open to the public.
Shaun Rein will speak on a panel entitled "China's Cultural Future" which seeks to discuss how China's society is undergoing rapid changes in the face of consumerism.
"I am delighted to participate in the FACES conference. This is a great opportunity for China's and America's future leaders to come together to discuss ways to promote dialogue between our two countries," says Shaun Rein. In all, 46 youth leaders from China and the US have been chosen to participate in the conference and in special events organized for them.

The event will provide an excellent opportunity for participants to build the foundations for long-lasting relationships for people interested in promoting understanding between China and the US.
