Midlands Voices: Nebraska's Connections to China Increasingly Important

I recently returned from a two-week visit to the People’s Republic of China. It was my second visit to that country in four years.
Both trips were organized by the Confucius Institute at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Xi’an Jiaotong University. The delegation from Nebraska, which I accompanied, traveled from Beijing to Xi’an and then to Shanghai.
Comparing both trips, I could see what has changed in four years and what has stayed the same.
