Shi Youqi gave a detailed introduction to the operation characteristics and talent training system of GDUFS and reviewed the long-term friendly exchanges between the two schools. He said that GDUFS and Sapporo University shared long-term cooperation and profound friendship. In 2006, both universities co-founded the Confucius Institute at Sapporo University, the first Confucius Institute in Guangdong Province and the only Confucius Institute in Hokkaido. As a communication bridge between China and Japan, the Confucius Institute has become an important channel for the spread of Chinese culture in Hokkaido. In recent years, the two schools have established a smooth communication platform, with frequent faculty and student exchanges, and achieved fruitful results in project cooperation and other aspects. Shi emphasized that both universities share promising cooperation in higher education, and he hoped that in the future, based on the existing cooperation, we would continue to promote faculty and student exchanges, explore in-depth cooperation in multiple disciplines and fields, and boost cultural exchanges and mutual learning of civilizations between China and Japan.
