Clear motives

The few people I told I was studying Chinese returned a somewhat puzzled look.
Puzzled in the sense of truly not grasping why anyone ever would want to do such a thing.

Yet, my motives are clear:
Today, and in the decade to come, interesting things are happening in China.
Events ranging from something as remote as China getting involved in the European financial crisis to my own company developing a substantial interest in the country.
The latter not only for its market, but also for its skilled engineers.
And I want to be part of that.

Today on radio 1: “China wants to attract Belgian students“.
Johan De Graeve – chairman of Group T, a Flemish higher engineering education institute – promotes  the  exchange of  Chinese and Flemish engineering students.

I rest my case.
