The positive responses of the audiences and representatives of the Chinese universities to the visit of the ILF delegation and to the presentations were overwhelming and the members of the delegation felt very welcomed by their Chinese colleagues and by the Chinese students. The close cooperation and friendly atmosphere of the talks between the university representatives during this visit will strongly benefit the exchange of faculty members and students and also the academic success of the universities in China and Germany in the near future.
