IST and China Ambassador

IST Appoints it's First Ambassador in China

The Institute of Science and Technology (IST) has appointed its first ever ambassador in China. Cheng Hong, who is based at Tongji University, Shanghai, will help to advance the Chinese technical community by spreading the word about the support offered by the IST.

For the first time, technicians in China will have a point of contact in their own country who can help them get involved in the IST’s work to raise the status of technicians.
