Michaelmas Term has ended and the last of the interviews for 2016/2017 are taking place. In this issue of China Thinking, we consider links between China and the world, and the impact of travel. Peter Frankopan takes us on a look back at the ancient silk roads, Wilfred Wong shares his advice on how to remain competitive in business, and Rachel Murphy offers us insights into her research into 'left behind' children this year. Additionally, we announce the inaugural cohort of Rhodes Scholars-Elect for China; and the K. C. Wong Visiting Fellowship Programme.
Finally, take a look at the University's festive video (You Tube; YouKu) where you can see Exeter Chapel in a new light.
