Chopsticks Club in the news

China Daily Chopsticks story
China Daily Chopsticks story

The work of the Chopsticks Club was recognised and publicised in late December 2010 for its work in 'bridging the knowledge gap' in the UK about China. The newly launched European Edition featured the Club in its article entitled 'Food for Talk' in its third issue.
 
The article covers the Club's history, the profile of its members, the way that the Club bridges a vital gap between the Chinese and British communities here in the UK and the ton of noodles that we have eaten over the years! It also mentions the recognition of the valuable work of the Club by the Chinese authorities, including Vice Minister for foreign affairs, Fu Ying, and Ambassador Liu Xiaoming who have attended two of our high profile events.

'A Dialogue with the Ambassador' event - a huge success

To a room packed to capacity at the Royal Society in London on Tuesday 19 October, Ambassador Liu Xiaoming, addressed a captive audience of Chopsticks Club members and China-interested guests. His speech was very well researched and used the image of chopsticks and the knife and fork to convey the different cultures of China and the West. Both are important, he said "but the length of each chopstick is the same" He went on to describe how this reflected the need for equality in bi-lateral relations. Club Director, H-J Colston, spoke of the need to do more to educate the British public about China "in order to dispel fear and prejudice that often springs out of ignorance." She also talked of the expansion plans of the Club.

The event was kindly sponsored by Grant Thornton and Albany China

China's Ministry of Education honours the work of the Chopsticks Club

Club Director, H-J Colston, has been invited as a guest of the Ministry of Education to Beijing over the National Day Holiday period in recognition of the "outstanding contribution" by the Club "to the friendship and cooperation of our two countries". H-J will be part of a worldwide delegation of 50 individuals who have studied Chinese since China first invited overseas students 60 years ago to the mainland and who have been involved in promoting bi-lateral relation during their career. "This is a great honour," said H-J, "as it reflects the value that we add to our network and members in relation to promoting Chinese understanding, the importance of our network and the support services we provide."

Chopsticks Club Monthly Events

The Club's monthly dinner/speaker events provide a uniquely informal and welcoming atmosphere in which to network and to gain insight into the changing face of China. Its topical debates air issues of interest and concern to our members and generate healthy and sensitive discussion.

筷子俱乐部每月组织一次的聚餐-演说活动给大家提供了一个特别随意和热情的气氛,在这样的环境里相互交流,建立联系,获取有关正在变化中的中国情况。演说和辩论所涉及的话题不仅符合大家的兴趣,而且也引起了与会者们健康而理性的讨论。

Many Chinese people who move to the UK find it hard to find a real "UK experience" of life whilst they are here and to find friends with similar interests. The Chopsticks Club aims to fill this gap and to be the number one destination for anyone interested in China - including those whose work involves China, Chinese people moving to London and returning expatriates providing a ready-made community of like-minded professionals. The Club's aims are simple but sincere:
 

  • knowledge sharing
  • debate
  • cultural exchange
  • networking

许多居住在英国的中国人在英国生活期间难以获得真正的'英国'经验。因此,筷子俱乐部致力于改变这种状况,把俱乐部办成一个所有对中国感兴趣或与中国事务有关人士的首选之地,为这些具有相似意向或目的的专业人士们提供一个现成的社团。筷子俱乐部的目的虽然很简单可是非常真诚:
 

  • 知识分享
  • 辩论
  • 文化交流
  • 友谊
