The vice premier​’s delegation included presidents of the best known Chinese universities (Beijing, Qinghua, Beijing aeronautics, Tongji, Shanghai Jiaotong, science and technology of Central China etc.) and directors of incubators (Zhongguancun in Beijing, Qinghua in Shenzhen, SIP in Suzhou) as well as student entrepreneurs who, with the French institutions, spoke about the potential of this collaboration between our two countries, and about policies to encourage and accompany innovative company creation that benefit our students.   

The afternoon ended with the presentation of the ChunHui Cup: a Sino-French competition about entrepreneurship and innovation that encourages young innovative companies to create their company and set up in China.

Two days before this on-campus event on 30 June, top Chinese and French pubic officials and representatives of universities had gathered in Paris for the Franco-Chinese forum on higher education where SKEMA's dean, Alice Guilhon, was rewarded for the school's excellent relations with China.
