Peter Foster published in an UK newspaper in February this
Cambridge University has accepted
£3.7m from a Chinese foundation to endow a new professorship
into Development Studies.
the key fact is this: the donation
has been given by a completely unknown, anonymous Chinese
foundation called “Chong Hua”.
Chong Hua has no website, no listed
office in Britain, no record of its funding, no published
list of trustees, no public mission statement.
The don who is due to be the first
recipient of the Chong Hua professorship is Peter Nolan,
a well-respected China academic, who also happens to have
published a book and several papers with Liu Chunhang, the
son-in-law of Wen Jiabao, China’s prime minister.
Mr Liu, 40, is currently the head

Bank Regulatory Commission, highly influential positions
in a country where all major banks are owned by the state.
Professor Nolan is also said by colleagues, including one
I spoke to in China, to have taught Wen Ruchun, the daughter
of Wen Jiabao.
Chinese government "is currently
spending untold amounts of money– we can’t know how much,
but like everything else in China it’s a state secret – on
its "soft power", projecting an image abroad that
(I can vouch from experience) is at odds with the reality
