In the context of strengthening international relations and partnership, Qatar University (QU) and Shanghai International Studies University (SISU) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) yesterday.
QU president Dr Hassan al-Derham and SISU president Dr Li Yansong, were present at the signing ceremony with a number of officials from the two academic institutions. The purpose of this agreement is to promote co-operation between the two universities, especially in the academic and research field, as well as to promote exchange programmes for both students and faculty members.
Dr al-Derham, said, “I am delighted to sign this important agreement with the Shanghai International Studies University, which will undoubtedly enhance the prospects for co-operation between the two sides, especially with regard to the research aspect and student exchange programmes.”
Dr al-Derham noted that Chinese universities have demonstrated a clear superiority over the past years, and therefore the agreement is a great point of contact to help exchange experiences, ideas and to open new horizons for co-operation between QU and the universities of the Far East.
“Qatar University is a very strong academic institution, it’s playing a very important role in Gulf countries. So SISU, my university, it’s also a very important university, we focus on foreign languages, teaching and literature, also disciplines like international studies, communications, journalism, management and business. So I wish to broaden our area of co-operation with Qatar University, I am very confident, because I have been to Qatar several times and I know we can do lots of things together,” added Dr Yansong.
