Event Details

Co-hosted by Serve for China and Yale Center Beijing.

Event Description

Today, rural China is full of opportunities and challenges, yet there is a shortage of talent because of a general lack of understanding and high opportunity costs associated with staying "behind" in the countryside.

Why should young Chinese go to the country's rural regions to pursue entrepreneurship? Faced with the choice between pursuing one's ambitions and dedication to the public good, what value is there for rural entrepreneurs, and how should they define their mission? How can they effectively influence and promote the advancement of social development and reforms in today’s society?
