Computer ethics aside, Yunnan University was visited on the 13th of this month by Joseph E. Stiglitz, who won the Nobel Prize for economics in 2001 and is author of the book Making Globalization Work.

Two days later Iran's Cultural Attache to Beijing, Mohammad-Javad Aghajari, addressed government officials, students and faculty at Yunnan University, calling on China and Iran to increase their scientific and cultural ties. Aghajari called upon the students and faculty of Yunnan University's Iranian Studies Department to work to introduce Iran to the Chinese people. He also emphasized the two countries' ancient ties via the Silk Road and called for more educational exchanges between the two states.© Copyright 2005-2021 GoKunming.com all rights reserved.
