UIC President Prof Tang Tao's introduced to Mr Liu the development of the College. Prof Tang explained the Liberal Arts Education and Whole Person Education, as well as the blend of the internationalised environment with traditional Chinese culture that UIC provides. The College will vigorously promote the construction of the second phase of the campus, and continue to introduce excellent teachers to foster more talents.

Mr Liu emphasized that UIC has a unique geographical location, backed by Phoenix Mountain and adjacent to the ancient Huitong Village. The construction of the second phase of the campus should be implemented with high quality and high efficiency to create more talents for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

Deputy Secretary-General of the Zhuhai Municipal Government, Mr He Qingming, suggested that the construction of the second phase of the campus should need clear working hours for each stage of the project and should have a specific responsible person for each task.
