The academic level of the disciplines is world leading and the academic influence is far-reaching. The successful planting of natural rubber in the north drove the development of the rubber industry at home and abroad, promoted the economic development of many countries, and brought good international influence.
The quality of talent training has been recognized internationally and enjoys a high international reputation. The cultivation of international talents in tropical agriculture including international students and doctoral students made the disciplines famous in the world and is conducive to the construction of a world-class tropical agricultural science and education center.
The disciplines became world-renowned through international cooperation and exchanges. At present, the disciplines have signed cooperation memoranda with more than 20 scientific research institutions and 15 colleges and universities on student exchange programs, joint student training, exchange of young teachers, and joint scientific research, thus promoted the implementation of the opening-up strategy.
As a bridge for exchanges, the disciplines have undertaken many international projects. The projects include foreign aid training programs sponsored by the Ministry of Commerce to train officials and technicians from developing countries and regions in Asia, Africa, North America, South America, and Oceania, and 35 international training courses on tropical agricultural biotechnology for developing countries.
