North Campus, Guangdong University of Foreign Studies, January 7th, 2022: The delegation of the Consulate General of Iran in Guangzhou visited GDUFS’s north campus on the morning of January 7th. They were greeted by SHI Youqi, President of GDUFS, at the VIP Guest Room of the Executive Building. Both sides exchanged their views on talent cultivation relating to the study of Persian and promoting continued, friendly cooperation.

SHI welcomed the delegation and introduced various information about GDUFS. He pointed out that, GDUFS is a high-level university with distinct international features. GDUFS has successfully established cooperation with many foreign universities and institutions, resulting in a deep contribution to higher education between Belt and Road countries and within the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

Iran is an important country to cooperate with in the initiative of “Belt and Road”. GDUFS attaches great importance to the communication and cooperation with Iran, as well as signing the cooperation framework agreement with the University of Isfahan and sending students to participate in the construction projects. SHI stressed that GDUFS puts high value on the inter-disciplinary talent cultivation of minor languages. The university’s Persian major that has been certified as a national first-class major carried out with a bilingual, global-quality composite teaching style, which creates strong career prospects for students. He hopes that Persian talent cultivation can make great contribution towards enhancing the communication and collaboration of culture and economy between China and Iran.
