Vice-President Wu signed the MoU with President Zhang of CQU, and President Wu from Shih Hsin University signed the alliance-level MoU with President Zhang during the ceremony.

Vice-President Wu delivered a speech titled “Innovation and development of high education in the era of new scientific and technological revolution” in the Presidential forum, and he also expressed and exchanged his viewpoints of trends in the higher education sector with President Neville G. Pinto, University of Cincinnati, and other heads of institution from the United Kingdom, Australia, and mainland China.

During the meeting between CQU and ELECT, Vice-President Wu mentioned that TMU welcomes future opportunities to work with CQU in student and faculty exchange, and he invited students from the CQU International Cultural Festival to have a short term study at TMU; he also extended the invitation to President Zhang to participate TMU’s 60th anniversary celebration next year.
