Prof. Hao gave a speech on “Donald Trump and Sino-American Relationship”. As a political science expert, he projected the relationship of China and USA won’t be better but be more complicated when Donald Trump becomes President of United States. Trump is not a politician so that’s why he could be somehow unpredictable than other presidents. However, if he runs USA in a business mindset, that would also put himself and his country in danger. Prof. Hao pointed out that China should not be afraid. China is stronger and more powerful than before and no need to worry that much if China prepares itself more, no matter in economy or in military power. Around 250 college members of Cheng Yu Tung College attended the High Table Dinner and certainly enjoyed the speech and dinner.
