On the evening of April 1st, Consul General Huang Ping met with Joseph W. Polisi, the emeritus President of the Juilliard School, Dawood Farahi, the president of Kean University, Jamel C. Holley, the Assemblyman of the New Jersey General Assembly, and J. Christian Bollwage, the mayor of Elizabeth, New Jersey, and exchanged views on issues like China-US education cooperation and sub-national cooperation with them. Education Counselor Yang Jun attended the meeting.

Huang Ping welcomed the guests' visit to the Consulate General. He said since China's reform and opening-up as well as the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States 40 years ago, there appeared tremendous changes both in Chinese society and in China-US relations. China-US educational cooperation has yielded fruitful results and played a unique role in promoting the development of the relations between the two countries. Tianjin Juilliard School and Wenzhou Kean University are successful examples of China-US educational cooperation in recent years. He hoped that the guests would continue to actively participate in and support educational exchanges and practical cooperation between the two countries, so as to inject positive energy into the healthy development of China-US relations.

Joseph W. Polisi indicated that the Juilliard School has cooperated closely with Chinese educational institutions with fruitful results in recent years. Tianjin Juilliard School has completed the first batch of student enrollment and will officially start this fall. Juilliard School looks forward to further engaging in cultural exchanges between China and the United States and conducting various forms of cooperation with Chinese educational institutions.

Dawood Farahi said that the establishment of Wenzhou Kean University opened a new chapter in China-US educational cooperation. The school is developing well at present, and the first batch of students had graduated in 2018. Kean University is willing to continue contributing to the development of China-US relations and cultural exchanges in the future.

Jamel C. Holley and J. Christian Bollwage pointed out that there are many Chinese students in New Jersey and Elizabeth city who have played a positive role in promoting the local multicultural development and increasing people's understanding of China. They welcome more Chinese students to study in New Jersey and look forward to further progress in the educational cooperation between the two countries.
