Wang Zonghua introduced our university’s history, specialty, subject building, and achievements in recent years, especially the achieved result of cooperation with Faculty of Agriculture of Dalhousie University for a decade, and discussed the move and ideas to strengthen further cooperation with Dalhousie University. Keith Taylor, Associate Vice President of Dalhousie University, introduced their teaching, research, and specialty, expressing a desire to deepen bilateral cooperation.

Subsequently, Keith Taylor and his party and their Vice Dean of Faculty of Agriculture Claude Caldwell, who is now teaching in FAFU, held a working meeting with Overseas College.
