SUI warmly welcomed their arrival. When giving a brief introduction of GDUFS, SUI pointed out that GDUFS attaches great importance to internationalization, having established collaboration relationships with more than 400 universities and institutions from 57 countries and regions. In recent years, GDUFS has worked closely with universities in Indonesia, sending exchange students for further study. Also, GDUFS has established its Indonesia Studies Center and Guangdong Research Institute for International Studies to better accelerate mutual development. SUI hoped that both sides could facilitate cultural communication, expand their areas of collaboration, and ultimately promote the relationship between China and Indonesia.
June Kuncoro Hadiningrat, head of Delegation of Indonesian Senior Diplomats, thanked GDUFS for its reception and extended greetings to the exchange students studying in GDUFS. Since China has become the third largest foreign investor in the Indonesian market, June hoped that the two countries could achieve fruitful cultural exchange and economic expansions. The delegation also expressed its willingness to continue building a friendly international relationship.
After the greeting, the two sides had a formal discussion. Some relevant officials from the Office of International Cooperation and Exchange; the Academic Research Division; the Indonesia Studies Center; and the Guangdong Research Institute for International Studies also attended the meeting.
