THE CHINESE SOCIETY OF FRIENDS
IE CHINA CENTER has helped to create The Chinese Society of Friends of Spain, which aims at bringing together former participants of the FCECh program.
The object of the constitution of the Chinese Society of Friends of Spain is to create an instrument that builds on the efforts of the leadership program once it has finished by facilitating long term contact with these professionals. At the same time, it will help create a network of influential professionals with a sense of friendship towards Spain. This collective will be linked to the Foundation, its Patron institutions and other possible Spanish counterparts who can help enable more specific collaborations.
