Ambassador Zheng Zeguang Visits Queen’s University Belfast
2023-03-31 19:25

On 28 March 2023, H.E. Ambassador Zheng Zeguang, who was on a visit in Northern Ireland, met with Vice-Chancellor Ian Greer of Queen's University Belfast, and exchanged views with him on cooperation between China and the university.

Vice-Chancellor Greer said that Queen's University Belfast attaches great importance to exchanges and cooperation with Chinese universities and welcomes more Chinese students to study at Queen's. The university values China's strength in research and huge potential of development, and would like to further deepen cooperation with Chinese scientific research institutions. It was a great honour for him to co-host the China-UK/Northern Ireland Forum on New Energy Innovation with the Chinese Consulate General in Belfast. The forum was a meaningful trial to tap into the complementary advantages of the UK and China for win-win results. It is hoped that the two sides will continue to explore and carry out mutually beneficial cooperation, and contribute to green and low-carbon development in Northern Ireland and China.

Ambassador Zheng noted that Queen's is a world-renowned university and stands out for its top-class teaching and research capacity. It is great to see that Queen's has established cooperative relations with many Chinese universities. China is striving for high-quality development and supports technological innovation. It has a super-size market and unique advantages in ultra-large-scale application of emerging technologies. China is ready to encourage more universities to expand teaching and research cooperation with Queen's, and will encourage more Chinese students to choose Queen's as their destination for studying overseas.

Chinese Consul General in Belfast Zhang Meifang, Counselor Hua Mei, wife of Ambassador Zheng, and Minister Bao Ling, Minister Counselor Bi Haibo, and Counselor Kong Xiangwen of the Chinese Embassy in the UK were also present at the event.
