Vice Minister of Transport of PR China visits Swansea

On 28 November a delegation of five senior government officials, led by Vice Minister of Transport of PR China, Mr He Jianzhong, visited the School of Law at Swansea University with a view to discussing further means of collaboration.

The delegation was warmly welcomed by Professor Elwen Evans QC, the Head of the School of Law and during the visit the Vice Minister had an opportunity to talk to some of the LLM students. The delegation also had an opportunity to discuss current issues facing the shipping sector with Swansea academics.

The School of Law enjoys a close relationship with Chinese academic institutions and policy makers. There are long-standing exchange agreements (for staff and students) in place and Professor Barış Soyer, Director of the Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law, is a visiting Professor at various institutions including Dalian Maritime University, Shanghai Maritime University and Jimei University.

The visit was a great success and will provide a framework for further collaboration in future between China and the School.
