On behalf of President Lee, Ven. Jue Wei presided a welcome ceremony. During the ceremony, both parties exchanged ideas of furthering cooperative relationship. Currently two students from Wenzhou University are studying at UWest. Both universities wish that more students can take advantages of other university and participate in the student exchange programs. Also, both parties plan to develop special short-term programs/courses to attract students/executives from China to UWest to learn on how to do business in the US and students/executives from US to Wenzhou University to learn on how to do business in China.
