The meeting started with welcome speech by Lin Zhongqin, who expressed that SJTU, as one of China's C9 League Universities, through cooperation with Go8, deepened the understanding of Australia's higher education. The Australian government-supported Executive Shadow Program largely improved mutual trust between Chinese and Australian universities, and set the stage for future substantial partnership between SJTU and the universities of Go8.
