NJUST Professors Attended China’s Reception for Foreign Experts

A reception for foreign experts working in China was held on September 27 at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

Vice Premier Han Zheng attended the reception and conveyed thanks and regards on behalf of the Chinese government and President Xi Jinping to all foreign experts and international friends for their support of China's reform, opening-up and modernization drive.

The event invited three NJUST foreign professors: Harald Fuchs, Aliaksandr Rahachou, Dieter Klaus Bestle. While the three professors witnessed, supported, and contributed to NJUST’s development as well as China’s development, they have forged profound friendship with the Chinese people.

Han, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, said that China's progress in the past seven decades was the result of the unremitting efforts of the Chinese people of all ethnic groups and the hard work by foreign experts.

As a nation that values friendship, we will never forget their contributions to China's reform, opening-up and modernization drive, Han said.

Han pointed out that China now stands at a new historical starting point in its development, and the country will carry out the innovation-driven development strategy and promote high-quality economic development.

NJUST has attached great importance to foreign experts. In recent years, more than a thousand foreign experts have come to the university for teaching or academic research, and have made significant contribution for the development of NJUST.
