On May 22, a cornerstone-laying ceremony for the ECNU Affiliated Changzhou West Taihu Lake School was hosted in West Taihu Lake Science and Technology Industrial Park of Changzhou City. Dai Liyi, Vice President of ECNU and Director of ECNU Education Group, Li Lin, Vice Mayor of Changzhou City and Secretary of Wujin District Party Committee, and other related personnel attended the ceremony.
According to Li Lin, the West Taihu Lake area, where the school is located, is not only the core area of the city for strategic development, but also the “most beautiful bay in the Yangtze River Delta” Changzhou is striving to build.
Dai Liyi said that ECNU will gather first-class educational resources, offer diversified courses, and implement elite education, in an effort to build West Taihu Lake School into a top-ranking school leading the development of basic education in China, and provide educational support for the concentration of high-end resources in West Taihu Lake.
