Updated 11:11, 14-Jan-2019

Liu Baicheng, a fellow at the Chinese Academy of Engineering, headed the first group of Chinese students studying abroad on government scholarships back in 1978. After completing overseas studies, Liu declined an official post abroad and returned to China. “I didn’t hesitate to come back. Actually, I didn’t even think twice. I thought about the world-renowned song, 'Home Sweet Home'.” Today, this land of innovation draws not only returning Chinese students, but also worldwide foreign talent.
