Mme. Yang Xiuping, Secretary-General of ACC, is delivering the lecture
The relationship between countries lies in the affection from people to people, and the affection between civilians lies in mutual understanding. China and ASEAN are geographically connected, and culturally interlinked. The friendly exchanges between countries cannot be separated from a solid foundation for people-to-people exchanges, while education is an important part of it. The ASEAN-China Forum for Private Higher Education Development and Cooperation discussed the future development and cooperation paths for the higher education between China and ASEAN, and has come to the Consensus to build cooperative mechanism and explore new opportunities and cooperative patterns for education.
During its development, USY has always adhered to its educational philosophy for internationalization. By taking the platform of the ASEAN-China Forum, USY will deepen the long-term cooperative mechanism with SEAMEO and form the synergetic effect for educational internationalization. Through the implementation of international cooperation projects, USY will enrich students' international experience, and explore a more international talent training mode for building more diversified international communication platforms for its teachers and students.
