  • Chinese Amabssador visiting VUB

    On January 13th, rector Paul de Knop, along with vice-rector Jan Cornelis, professor Hans De Wolf and members of the International Office  IRMO, warmly welcomed the Chinese delegation at Etterbeek campus. QU Xing, the new Chinese ambassador to Belgium, was amongst the delegation.
