This June, for the second time since the launch of the Project Pengyou Chapter Network in March 2014, Project Pengyou Chapter Leaders from across the United States gathered at the University of Maryland to celebrate and learn from each other. On the second day of the event, we also held a public event at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies campus:
Building Your China Career: Opportunities in the US-China Space.
