He also discussed the important role of internationalization in developing modern Chinese university systems.

They also talked about what innovative education, research and service initiatives their universities have launched or may establish to support sustainable development and the future-oriented changes. The global impact of China and the rise of Chinese universities were frequently mentioned topics at the Colloquium. President Chen’s participation in the discussion enriched the understanding of the global university leaders about the development of research universities in China.
