Later, Dou introduced the development of WHU in recent years at different angles, including high-level talent recruitment, campus facilities construction and undergraduate education.

He believed that the cooperation between China and South Korea as well as South Korea and Wuhan will be enhanced greatly under the collective efforts of the two countries.

The two sides also exchanged opinions on further promoting courses of Korean language teaching and arrangements about South Korean students’ returning to WHU.
