During the meeting, Chair Hao Ping extended a warm welcome. He said that Princess Sirindhorn was an old friend of PKU and had made important contributions in promoting friendly exchanges and cooperation in the fields of culture, education, and science and technology between China and Thailand. PKU is actively supporting the Sirindhorn Science and Technology Cultural Exchange Center, with which Thai-oriented cooperation activities would be further carried out, and existing language and literature, culture, Sino-Thai relations, and other fields would be broadened. Princess Sirindhorn has backed the joint efforts of PKU and Chulalongkorn University (CU) on the Confucious Institute at CU, and she supports even more excellent Thai students to come and study at PKU. In the end of this meeting, Chair Hao Ping invited Princess Sirindhorn to attend the 120th Anniversary of PKU.
