China University Press Association Visit
In August 2005, Prof. K. K. Phua, Chairman of World Scientific, was proud to receive a delegation from the China University Press Association. Headed by Prof. Li Jiaqiang, President of Tsinghua University Press, the delegation comprised presidents from 18 top Chinese university publishing arms.
The parties exchanged opinions on current trends and developments in the scientific publishing industry in China as well as Singapore. Particular emphasis was placed on the crucial question of how an Asian STM publisher can grow into an international corporation. Prof. Phua shared many of his experiences and expressed his interest in furthering collaboration with Chinese university presses.
