• 主旨演讲

“世界在广州:南中国全球贸易市场中的非洲人和其他外国人”

日期:3月8日,星期四

时间:18:30 – 19:00

数十年前,广州人口大多数都是中国人。今天,广州已摇身一变成为国际大都会,汇聚全球移居人士。在广州这片天地,外国人建立起新的生活、寻找自我及发展事业。这些人很多都是从事出口贸易的非洲人;他们把中国制造的商品出口至自已的国家,而这些商品大多数都是伪冒或仿制品。麦高登教授(Gordon Mathews)将通过本次讲座揭示广州成为“低端全球化” 中心的过程。他将分析在语言、文化及宗教信仰都不相通的情況下,中国人何以能够与来自撒哈拉以南的非洲人进行非正式的经济活动。他亦将探讨宗教在外国商人中扮演的角色,特別是那些以传教为毕生志业的基督徒商人。最后,麦高登教授诘问,当这些非洲人在广州成家立业、落地生根,我们将来有机会见到一名中国版奥巴马吗?
