Claudio Squarcia has recently moved to Bristol from Italy, where he achieved a BA degree in International Communication (in Perugia) and a MA in International Studies (in Torino), with a focus on Chinese issues. In particular, his MA dissertation was about the Chinese financial development since the 1990s. His research allowed him to deeply study and analyse many aspects of the Chinese economics, finance and even culture and politics. In this perspective, he was also helped by his passion for IT and by his attitude to easily learn new things. As an ambassador for the WoECB, his goal is to improve the connection and the network between Guangzhou and Bristol, and between China and the UK.
