The similarities between Montana and its sister state in China will be the subject of an Office of International Programs Brown Bag Lecture set at noon Wednesday, April 1, in Room 233 of Montana State University's Strand Union Building.

Professor Lianying Wu, a visiting scholar from Guangxi Traditional Medical University who is at MSU working with Jioanna Carjuzaa, professor of education, will discuss "the shared richness of cultures, citizens, history and boundless environment beauty that make Guangxi and Montana" a perfect match. In 1999 Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of China established a sister-state relationship with Montana.

Wu will also speak about Chinese educational reform, economic development, industry and agriculture as well as the improvement of living conditions in rural mountain areas inhabited by ethnic minority groups.

The Brown Bag Lecture is sponsored by the MSU Office of International Programs, 994-4031
