Zhejiang Senior University of Zhejiang Province, China has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with The American School for International Business (ASIB), a Council for Trade and Investment Promotion (CTIP) training school to promote training courses designed for senior citizens in New Jersey focused on international trade and livelihood projects.
CTIP‘s own training school, The American School for International Business (ASIB) has signed an MOU with Zhejiang Senior University of the People’s Republic of China to introduce courses in New Jersey designed for “senior citizens” in the field of international trade and livelihood projects advocating on the principle that there is life after retirement.
Zhejiang Senior University is a multi-disciplinary, multi-level and open-ended comprehensive old-style university located on the banks of the beautiful West Lake of Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China. The university campus covers an area of 24 acres and a building area of 30,000 square meters. The university was organized in April 1986 and implemented the school board responsibility system. The university is affiliated with the Zhejiang Provincial Party Committee and the Veteran Affairs Bureau.
Mr. Jeffery Jones, Chairman of CTIP, stated a delegation from the university came to visit the City of Newark, NJ last May 21, 2018, upon the invitation of CTIP as host. Jones said a conference was held on the topic of U.S. retirement and pension system, including challenges and opportunities under a post-retirement scenario among our senior citizens.
In an interview with Mr. Mao Ruifu, the Vice-Principal and Deputy Director General of the University in Zhejiang Province, the Chinese university has grown from 16 classes and 428 trainees at the beginning of the school to 26 professional courses, 58 courses, 164 teaching classes, 9 community associations, and more than 20,000 students. From classroom-based education, it is transformed into a comprehensive education system that integrates politics, ideology, science, knowledge, and interest.
Mr. Mao Ruifu has also offered exchange student arrangements between senior citizens from China and New Jersey. The objective of both the University and ASIB is to make senior citizens productive through networking activities, advocating that there is life after retirement.
