He said that both the International Campus and CCI (China) have close ties with Zhejiang University, and have a lot in common in terms of entrepreneurship, innovative ideas, and international vision. He hoped that in the next stage, the two sides could combine the internationalization background of CCI (China) with the internationalization concept of the International Campus, in order to continue to explore the intelligent campus model and combine informatization with campus management. Meanwhile, for the long term, both sides need to promote cooperation among industry, universities, and research institutes, and make unique contributions to higher education in China and the world.
