Meet world renowned international development experts from the University of Cambridge, NGO's and Think Tanks followed by attendance at a public lecture on the Future of the United Nations by Lord Mark Malloch Brown, chaired by Rt Hon Andrew Mitchell MP.

The workshop, hosted in the historic surroundings of Trinity College, will be on "The Rising Power of China in International Development" and will discuss the Chinese way of doing development business as the country boosts its trade and investment based on the policy framework of the "One Belt, One Road Initiative".

Panellists will include Dr K C Lin, Executive Director of the CRP and a University lecturer in Politics where his research focuses on the politics of market reform in developing countries. Other Cambridge academics will feature on the panel, alongside China development expert Jessica Toale, Executive Director of the Centre for Development Results and Tom Cargill, Executive Director of the British Foreign Policy Group.
