On December 5, the Archives of ECNU and the Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE) jointly launched Kwang Hua University in Chengdu: A Ten-year History. Mei Bing, University Council Chairwoman of ECNU, Zhao Dewu, University Council Chair of SWUFE and other leaders from the two universities attended the book launch ceremony.
Kwang Hua University, which was transferred from Shanghai to Chengdu, is the predecessor of both ECNU and SWUFE. To unearth the history of the Kwang Hua University in Chengdu, the archives of the two universities have worked together since 2018 to compile wang Hua University in Chengdu: A Ten-year History, based on their respective library collections. The book records the hardships Kwang Hua University underwent to start a school in Chengdu.
At the ensuing symposium, Zhao Dewu briefly reviewed the 95-year school-running history of SWUFE. He expected that SWUFE and ECNU could deepen their strategic partnership and draw on each other’s strengths to explore a new cooperation paradigm for both universities in the new era .
Mei Bing said at the symposium, “ECNU is ready to cooperate further with SWUFE in the new development pattern of ‘double circulation’, so as to jointly serve the construction of the Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle.”
