In the afternoon of April 9, CUPL President Huang Jin met with Kristel Baele, President of Erasmus University Rotterdam in Netherlands, and witnessed the renewal of the cooperation agreement signed by representatives of the two universities.
President Huang said that he was very pleased to meet with President Baele, and briefed her about the history, achievements, disciplines, faculty, as well as international exchanges and cooperation of CUPL.
