Prof Tang Tao talks about UIC's development

Mr Yao emphasised that to meet the actual needs of the accelerated construction of the Greater Bay Area and the accelerated development of the Zhuhai Special Economic Zone, higher institutions like UIC have a part in better serving economic and social development.

Mr Yao pointed out that it is necessary to integrate UIC's future campus with the natural environment and characteristic old buildings. The government will further improve the transportation network, promote the deep integration of the college campus and the neighbouring ancient village, and create better conditions for the development of UIC.
