Alfredo Alfonso emphasized that the two universities have conducted fruitful cooperation, hoping that the two could take the visit and the signing of cooperation agreements as an opportunity to strengthen cooperation in various fields and to deepen international exchanges and cooperation into a new level.
During the visit, school leaders of the two universities jointly signed five cooperation agreements in various fields such as scientific research and life sciences. Meanwhile, heated discussions over the details of cooperation were held with relevant heads of agencies, experts, and scholars.
