Zhang noted that in recent years JNU had made great achievements, thanks to cooperative projects, encouraging it to move forward with stronger, mutually beneficial partnerships. He added that though JNU was famous for its disciplines in humanities, subjects like biomedicine, science and engineering have started to make a mark, indicating huge potential for further cooperation. In addition, he mentioned a planned visit to Mexico in October, in the hope of in-depth contact with Mexican universities to arrange cooperation.
Concha expressed his ardent desire to promote exchanges and cooperation between China and Mexico. As one of southern Mexico's top cities in education, Merida attracts a large number of Chinese students. To further promote student exchanges, Merida plans to launch a series of policies, including scholarships for Mexican students in China and 24-hour security protection for Chinese students in Mexico. Concha said Merida was willing to offer a platform for students to seek opportunities to cooperate with China in tourism, economy and academia.
Bai expressed the association's willingness to promote teacher and student exchanges between Mexican universities and JNU. He said setting up centers to teach Chinese language at Mexican universities and organizing students to take part in short-term study tours to Mexico are key directions for future development.
