President Hasebe gave a presentation in roundtable 2.

In the closing ceremony, Incheon National University President Dong-Sung Cho stated that all participating universities and institutions are appointed as founding members of PUS and PUS is held annually. Participants from Taiwan and UAE became the candidates to host the 2nd and 3rd PUS. The statement and the nominations were approved unanimously. Also, since YNU is the founder and the secretariat of Port-city Universities League (PUL), YNU was appointed as a leader of the founding members.

PUS was a valuable opportunity for YNU to build the exchange relations with universities’ faculties including participants from partner universities of YNU. Through PUS, a huge international university network centered on port-city universities is expected to be established.
