Jiangsu Province is located on the east coast of China, next to Shanghai. It has been a hot spot for economic, technology and transportation development, and is now one of China's most prosperous provinces. The capital city Nanjing, one of the six ancient capitals of China, has been an important educational, political, economic and transport hub in China for thousands of years.

Professor Corinne Mulley, Acting Director of ITLS, welcomed Mr You and his colleagues and, together with senior colleagues at ITLS, provided an overview of the Institute's research activities and operations, after which the group discussed future collaboration opportunities.

The visit (facilitated by Andrew Zhang of Australia China Cultural and Professional Exchange) was a great success, with the visiting delegation expressing great admiration for the work of ITLS and the hope for future collaborations.
