He was pleased to see the cooperation between the two universities and hoped they could jointly cultivate talents proficient in Chinese and make them a bridge between the two cultures. Wang further added that this event was a positive response to the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and would help promote further cooperation in education and research between SJTU and universities in the BRI countries, and promote the dialogue of distinct cultures in a more profound way.

Mahidol University has its origins in the establishment of Siriraj Hospital in 1888, and the hospital’s medical school is the oldest institution of higher education in Thailand. Internationally known for its achievement in medical science, public health, and natural science, it has been recognized as the second best university in Thailand. Through this cooperation, the School of Humanities will promote more collaboration with the BRI countries in the field of joint research and the joint cultivation of talents.
