Multinationals including I.B.M., General Electric, Intel and General Motors have each hired thousands of graduates from Chinese universities.
“We’re starting to see leaders coming out of China, and the talent to lead,” said Kevin Taylor, the president of Asia, Mideast and Africa operations at BT, formerly British Telecom.

One cannot just increase higher education capacity simply by throwing money at it; it takes qualified instructors and prepared students. Unless I see some good plan to account for this reality, unfortunately I for one will expect academic quality to be low at new Chinese public universities.

A billion-and-a-half people. I suspect they'll be able to create and run a very productive and powerful higher education system. If they need help from outside of China, they'll buy it. They're not starting from scratch here.

Sorry, I should have elaborated. The proposal I saw was for them to double their higher education capacity by 2020. I absolutely believe the Chinese can add to their existing constellation of quality universities, just not so rapidly in such a short span of time.
