On 24 July, the Chinese Embassy in the UK held a reception for the male and female rugby teams of Swansea University due to leave for China for the First China-UK University Sports Week.

The reception was presided over by Minister Counsellor of Education Shen Yang.

He wished the students a success in the competition and a pleasant trip to China. Vice-Chancellor Richard Davies and Director Education Jim Addison spoke at the reception. They thanked the Chinese side for this valuable exchange platform and hoped that the students will seize this opportunity not only to compete in sports but also to foster friendship and mutual learning between university students of the two countries.
