Tiberghien on China / Chinese National TV on Tiberghien

With the 2016 G20 in China, Yves Tiberghien – our resident expert on China, was working behind the scenes during G20 preparations, and was in the media both in China and in Canada.

Vision 20

In his capacity as Director of the Institute of Asian Research, Tiberghien led a UBC IAR contingent that organized an event with over 50 global leaders to prepare the G20 in China, drafting a Blue Book of recommendations for the Chinese G20 presidency, which was submitted and read at the highest levels. The event took place in March and April at Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, and over 15 UBC students were involved and participated in the summit, half of which were Political Science students.
