Thank you for joining us at the second monthly panel discussion organized by the Dialogue China. As a think tank for China, our monthly panel discussion will have the following features: first, we will be inviting at least one Chinese scholar, dissident, or activist to participate; in the future we will be looking for people who understand China but are not well exposed in the field. Second, our monthly discussion will be held in a semi-public form. We will send invitations and open some seats to the public audiences. We hope that closed door discussion will be more fruitful. Thridly, we hope this will not be a place for formal speeches. Everyone can express their opinion regarding the topic. We hope this is a platform to exchange opinion, a platform for dialogue.
Because of our financial limitation, we could only hold one such discussion each month. If the think tank is lucky enough to get more financial support, we hope to expand this discussion forum to bi-weekly. Thank you again for your participation.
