“When our thousands of Chinese students abroad return home, you will see how China will transform itself”, Deng Xiaoping

Origin of the quote: Robert Hormats, vice chairman of Kissinger Associates, recalls meeting with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping in the 1970s, when the nation still was recovering from the Cultural Revolution and many people had fled to live and study elsewhere.

“When our thousands of Chinese students abroad return home, you will see how China will transform itself,”

Deng told him.
