A delegation from Guizhou University in Guiyang -- capital of Southwest China's Guizhou province -- visited Yunnan University in Kunming, Yunnan's provincial capital on July 22, to discuss cooperation, YNU officials said.
It was led by Yang Song, vice-president of Guizhou University. Zhao Qihua, vice-president of YNU, together with other university officials, met the delegation.
Zhao gave a briefing on YNU's "double first-class" development -- its efforts to build itself into a world-class university with world-class disciplines.
He hoped that the talks would lead to deeper cooperation between the two universities and help both to enhance their administration standards.
Yang also gave an outline of Guizhou University in recent years and said he expected to learn about YNU's experience in its double first-class development, hiring of professionals and scientific research.
During the meeting, representatives from the two universities discussed the development of their academic disciplines, recruitment programs, incentive policies and models for scientific research and more.
