In his welcoming speech, XAUAT Vice-Rector for International Exchange and Cooperation Yao Yao expressed his gratitude to the SPbGASU top management for readiness to build partnerships. “Good-neighbourliness between our countries is very important for China, because it was Soviet specialists who came here in the 50s to train the first generation of engineers, and we are happy to continue this cooperation,” he noted, adding that Xi'an University invites SPbGASU representatives to visit China.

“It is a great honor for us to enter into partnership relations with your university,” said Irina Lugovskaia, SPbGASU Vice-Rector for Youth Policy. “Xi'an University is a modern, prestigious and efficient educational institution, and therefore our cooperation promises to be fruitful and interesting.”


Interaction between SPbGASU and Xi'an University in certain areas has already begun: in November, the Chinese Bridge cultural and educational project, initiated by XAUAT, was launched, within which SPbGASU students and teachers will be able to get to know the unique Chinese culture and architecture.
