Dr Chau Chak Wing, designated Chair of the Asia-Pacific Region CdM President’s Circle

We are particularly grateful to Dr Chau Chak Wing for being the engine behind the collaboration between the collaboration between the Australia China Friendship and Exchange Association, the Chinese People’s for Friendship with Foreign Countries and Club de Madrid. Thanks to his efforts the 2016 Imperial Springs International Forum was a resounding success that will lead to further possibilities of collaboration.


As Vaira Vike-Freiberga, former President of Latvia and current President of the Club de Madrid, has stated “Dr Chau Chak Wing has a deep understanding of the implications not only of the Belt and Road concept for China or the Asia-Pacific Region”, the theme of the ISIF, but also “for a new globalized world with a human face”.
