This meeting is a continuation of Mr.'s initial meeting. Yan Guanglin, who previously visited Udayana University, offered the idea of collaboration with Udayana University. Based on the communication between the two parties, the MoU has been drafted but still needs to be perfected and in this meeting it was discussed in more depth regarding cooperation opportunities that are based on the health sector but do not rule out the possibility that later it will also involve other fields such as engineering and tourism because they are related to medical equipment and medical tourism.
Prior to the signing of the initial phase of the collaboration, discussions were held in detail regarding points of cooperation and other opportunities that could be developed through this collaboration. This meeting is a good start for new cooperation to be carried out which further bridges relations between China and Indonesia and benefits society.
