Speech by Shi Guangming, the Vice President
Shi Guangming showed warm welcome to all participants. He said, this year was the 55th year of the establishment of Sino-French diplomatic relations. One month ago, Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in Nice and started his state visit in France. Today, Sino-French Engineer Education Workshop was held in Xidian University to seek for common development and build our friendship, which had profound meanings. He pointed out that the engineer education in France could be taken as an example for the global engineer education. At present, Xidian University strived to build a new type talent cultivation system with the theme of “students as the center, moral education as the importance, ability as the priority and knowledge as the basis” in this intelligent era. This workshop would provide a good opportunity to broaden the mind in engineering education and expand the cooperation fields.
