Sharing our knowledge with China

30 October 2012

Cardiff hosts first Chinese University leaders

Leaders of China's top universities have arrived in Cardiff as the University plays host to Wales’ first UK-China Forum.

Organised by the National Academy of Educational Administration (NAEA), in association with the British Council Beijing, the UK-China Forum consists of a 28 strong delegation of Chinese University Presidents, Vice-Presidents and Party Secretaries - alongside speakers from across the UK - to share management knowledge.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Colin Riordan, who has just returned from his first trip to China since taking over the reins at the University, said: "One of my priorities on taking up my role was to use Cardiff University’s unique position in Wales and standing as a world-leading research University to raise our international profile.

"One of the many ways we can do this is to build our international educational and business links – especially with countries like China. Our relationship with China is hugely important for us as a University - it’s a relationship based on a real two-way flow with the Chinese universities and businesses that we work with closely, bringing benefits to them and to us.

"Hosting the first UK-China Forum in Wales offers a unique opportunity to share knowledge and establish new links."
