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.
Harbin regained the honorary title of "National Civilized City" on Aug 21.
Harbin Economic and Development Zone recently issued measures for the innovative development of the industrial chain.
The Harbin area of China (Heilongjiang) Pilot Free Trade Zone recently moved to streamline its small business licensing regulations to help stimulate the zone’s economy.
Heilongjiang province will leverage all its formidable array of natural advantages to develop its popular winter tourism.
