Mr. Martinet introduced France’s policies and development advantages in scientific and technical innovation. As he stated, France had carried out frequent exchanges with Hunan and further propelled mutual cooperation in recent years. Last year, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and France, the Attached Primary School of HNU opened its first French class which was the pioneer in central China. This time, Mr. Martinet said, the aim is to expand cooperation in higher education.

At the meeting, both parties agreed to collaborate on opening French courses, holding lectures and seminars on academic and cultural topics, and organizing student and teacher exchange programs. Mr. Martinet promised that French Consul-General in Wuhan would exert all its energies to offer necessary information and create convenience for the activities.

The principals of HNU Department of International Communication and Cooperation, School of Architecture, Distance Learning and Continuing Education College and School of Design also talked with the French guests over the specific cooperation items.
