A symposium was held in Hainan University (HNU) on July 10 to discuss internationalized education.
Wu Yaoting, Party secretary of HNU, pointed out that internationalization is essential for the university to foster world-class disciplines, and to assist Hainan in the construction of a free trade zone and a free trade port.
According to Wu, HNU should explore renovating its teaching and management, as well as integrate all educational resources available. The disciplines should cultivate talents that have strong competitiveness in the market and cater to the needs of large enterprises at home and abroad.
