The delegation visited the Peking University Frontier Computing Research Center and the software technology innovation and foreign expertise introduction base.

Zhang held in-depth talks with Professor John E. Hopcroft, winner of the Turing Prize, David Moser, foreign academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and vice-president of the Yanjing School of Science, and Professor Roger T. Ames from the university’s philosophy department. They offered their opinions on foreigner’s work permits in China and the implementation of R visas for foreigners.

Zhang said that Peking University, as a key institution attracting foreign talents, should continue to improve its procedures to attract even more. It should fully implement the strategy of "using talents from all walks of life" and introduce more high-level foreign talents to carry out cooperation in scientific research and academic exchanges, and to play a more significant role in the construction of a "double-top-class economy." SAFEA will, as always, support Peking University's introduction of foreign expertise.

Hao thanked SAFEA for supporting Peking University in introducing foreign scientists in frontier fields, and promoting international cooperation and exchanges.
