In response, President Lin put forward meaningful suggestions and opinions. For instance, visiting the German and Thai companies in China in the summer camp, which will reflect the “practice-oriented” concept of our university directly and enhance the understanding of exchange students on local Chinese enterprises. Furthermore, cultural activities, like Taichi and Go, can be integrated into various international exchange activities to enhance cultural communication among three countries. Meanwhile, President Lin had great expectations for the cooperation between our university and KMITL, and would root for the international exchange activities. Then, the delegation of KMITL stated that Thai students expressed keen interest in Chinese culture, and the cooperation with Pujiang, which is based on the concept of “practice-oriented”, was also very compatible with the characteristics of their university.
