    Ambassador of Thailand to China Visits HEU

      On July 1, 2017, a delegation led by the Thai ambassador to China, H.E. Mr. Piriya Khempon, visited HEU. President YAO Yu and Vice President WU Linzhi met with them. The related officials from the Asian Department, Foreign Affairs Office of the Heilongjiang Provincial Government accompanied them.


      President YAO welcomed the delegation and introduced the historical developments and how HEU is run. He said that HEU has paid high attention to the communication and cooperation on humanity with Thailand. In recent years, HEU has frequently interacted with Kasetsart University in various forms of cooperation. At present, there are about 150 Thai students at HEU. He also expressed willingness to further deepen the scientific research cooperation with Kasetsart University and other institutes during the 13th five-year period and jointly build the China-Thailand Overseas Laboratory. HEU will share resources with Thai universities through platforms such as G7 and ICNAME and improve the constructions on talent cultivation and collective scientific research, in order to build bridges for cultural and educational exchange and technological cooperation between Chinese and Thai universities.

     

      The Thai ambassador to China, H.E. Mr. Piriya Khempon, expressed his  appreciation for HEU's cultivation and care for the Thai students. He noted that higher education cooperation is a significant item of bilateral friendship and cooperation. HEU is a high-level university in China with first-class engineering disciplines. Its related majors accord with Chinese "the belt and road initiatives" strategy as well as Thai "4.0"strategy and "eastern economic corridor" strategy. So we have large space for cooperation. As the greatest university for cultivating Thai students in Heilongjiang Province, HEU has made contributions for the cooperation between China and Thailand and has cultivated a lot of engineering talent. It will further promote cooperative projects on talent cultivation based on mutual benefits. In addition, the annual International Collegiate Snow Sculpture Contest has a wide effect in Thailand. He hopes that HEU will become the representative and vanguard of higher education in Heilongjiang Province under the friendly relationship between Heilongjiang Province and Samut Prakan and a friendly relationship between Harbin and Chiang Mai. He also hopes HEU will strengthen the cultural and educational exchange and cooperation with Kasetsart University in order that the two sides will complement each other. Finally, he stated that the Thai embassy will play its coordinating role to build platforms and provide convenience and powerful security.
