A remark from the UK’s Prince William as he opened the Dickson Poon University of Oxford China Centre. Its director Professor Rana Mitter told China Daily: “I hope our centre will be at the forefront of breaking down and reinterpreting this idea that China, unlike any other country, is supposed to be a fixed and unchanging place.” The campus cost $34 million, half of which was donated by Hong Kong tycoon Dickson Poon.
