HIT officials said took place at the Harbin Institute of Technology in Harbin – capital city of China’s northernmost Heilongjiang province – on June 7, the 100th anniversary of the establishment of HIT.
Heilongjiang shares a border with Russia, which over the years has exerted various cultural and other influences, including the architecture of some of Harbin’s prominent buildings.
During a visit to Russia in April, 2019, a Heilongjiang government delegation reached an agreement with the Saint-Petersburg University to strengthen their education cooperation and exchanges by establishing a joint campus at HIT, which is a national key university with science and engineering as its core.
They will inherit the tradition of Sino-Russian friendship and strategic interaction, the diplomat added.
He also expressed his hope that the construction would be completed as soon as possible and accept enrollments for its first batch of students.
Heilongjiang Provincial Hospital launched a service offering nucleic acid tests for COVID-19.
Harbin launched 11 measures to increase subsidies, support stable employment and strengthen guaranteed services.
The government of Harbin recently released new guidelines for curbing a COVID-19 outbreak.
The business environment in Harbin has seen significant improvements since the launch of measures in recent years that targeted simplifying business license applications.
