Dispatches from China

People’s Republic turns 60 with unique style

This week, in honor of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, I have interrupted our regular programming to give you an article by Matt Beyer, one of Wisconsin’s native sons who is one of the legion of China’s half-pats.

Beyer is a consultant for Edelman Public Relations in Beijing, China. Before joining Edelman, Beyer worked as Yi Jianlian’s interpreter from 2007 to 2008 with the Milwaukee Bucks. He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, class of 2008 (Journalism, Chinese Literature and East Asian Studies) and founding president of the University of Wisconsin Alumni Association Beijing chapter. He can be reached via e-mail at beyer.matt@gmail.com. The following is Beyer’s guest contributed article:
