On the afternoon of June 6, 2018, the 11 members of the French youth visiting group sponsored by Wu Jianmin Foundation came to visit China Foreign Affairs University (CFAU). Professor Wang Fan, vice president of CFAU, met with Ms. Wang Lin, the deputy secretary general of Wu Jianmin Public Welfare Foundation, and the youth visiting group.
Wang Fan extended a warm welcome to the French youth visiting group and briefed them on our university. Then they shared fond memories of Ambassador Wu Jianmin, the late president of CFAU, who made a great contribution to the development of the university. Later, Wang answered the questions raised by the French visitors at the meeting and exchanged views on the current international situation and international issues with the group members.
Wang said that although China and France were far apart, there had always been a strong connection between the two countries. Our university has maintained good relationships with many universities in France for a long time. It is believed that the relations between China and France will remain stable and develop in a friendly way in the future.
After the meeting, the visiting group, accompanied by a number of students from our university, visited the campus and communicated with our students. There was a deep and heated discussion on campus life, social networks, the relationship between China and France and the history of both countries.
The French youth visiting group was sponsored by Wu Jianmin Public Welfare Foundation. More than 10 outstanding young people from different fields were invited to carry out a two-week inspection and tour in China, visiting Beijing, Shenzhen, Chengdu, and other cities. They will visit some places, exchange information and attend seminars to get a thorough understanding of China’s national conditions and development.
The exchange activity held in our university was one of the important visiting activities of the French youth visiting group. The activity will contribute to mutual understanding between the youth of the two countries, foster friendship and improve the international reputation of CFAU.
