From October 4th through 9th 2018, President Mitsuo Ochi and Executive and Vice President Toshiyuki Sato visited the Ministry of Education of Taiwan and four national universities: National Taiwan University, National Chiao Tung University, National Sun Yat-sen University and National Cheng Kung University.
This visit was made a reality by the invitation of the Taiwanese government (the Ministry of Education), which was stemmed from the visit of the delegation from Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Osaka (including the Director General and the Head of the Culture and Education) to Hiroshima University (HU) made in April 2018.
At each of four universities, as well as the Ministry of Education of Taiwan, the delegation from HU exchanged opinions about furthering mutual cooperation while confirming the current status of education and research of both sides. Furthermore, HU and National Sun Yat-sen University reached a basic agreement about signing an inter-university agreement in the near future.
HU concluded an inter-university agreement with National Taiwan University in December 2014, as well as with National Cheng Kung University in May 2016. Moreover, HU’s Graduate School of Science signed a departmental exchange agreement with the College of Science of National Chiao Tung University in July 2016. Additionally, HU hosted the 2018 Japan-Taiwan University Presidents’ Forum in June 2018 in Hiroshima and saw the attendance of about 200 delegates from both countries including the representatives from the Ministry of Education of Taiwan.
With a new inter-university agreement with National Sun Yat-sen University as momentum, HU is determined to deepen partnership with the above institutions in Taiwan even further.
