The World China Wants

Richmond Literary Lunches

DATE: Thursday 23 February, 2023
LOCATION: Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Club, Richmond

We are delighted to have Lord Chris Patten, former Governor of Hong Kong, at our next lunch.

Lord Patten will be joined by Kerry Brown, author of Xi: A Study in Power, about Xi Jinping, President of the People’s Republic of China.

This promises a fascinating insight into the workings of the Chinese Communist Party.  This comes at an interesting time because of the Party’s reaction to the recent public protests over covid-19 restrictions, and the annoncement that China’s population has shrunk for the first time in decades.

The lunch is held at the Royal Mid-Surrey golf club, Old Deer Park, in a wonderful dining room with a view to Kew Gardens, the Kings Observatory and two golf courses.
