They actively raised questions and exchanged ideas. The ZCCA delegation, experts and scholars were well informed of the teaching resources, financing, teaching and scientific research, international exchange and other aspects, who provided “golden ideas” and expressed their willingness to offer resources and advantages of their own to support development of the university. The co-founder and CMO Trey Taylor of America-based Verdant Power Inc. said to WKU students, “You are lucky enough to be admitted in this excellent university!”

As the ZCCA Secretary-General Zhang Ming points out, ZCCA is now acting as a go-between for Zhejiang businessmen at home and abroad by launching various cooperation activities; it’s a great pleasure to facilitate development of institutes of higher learning in Zhejiang. Those outstanding individuals in the American academic community will take full advantage of various resources to create a perfect mechanism to encourage development of students of WKU.
