The delegation of nearly 100 members of American Technion Society (ATS) started a three-day visit to GTIIT on November 5, 2018.

Based in New York City, The American Technion Society was founded by Technion alumni, aiming at advancing critical research and technologies that serve the State of Israel and the global good. ATS has been dedicated to support visionary education and world-changing impact through the Technion over the past 75 years. ATS nationwide supporter network has raised more than nearly $2.5 billion to fund new Technion scholarships, research, labs and facilities that have helped deliver world-changing contributions and extend Technion education to campuses on three continents.

GTIIT welcomed ATS guests with a traditional lion performance. During the welcome ceremony, President Peretz Lavie introduced the development of GTIIT. He emphasized that more faculty members and scientific researchers will be assigned by the Technion to promote the long-term development of GTIIT. President of STU Jiang Hong traced the origin of Shantou University and Technion, and introduced the current situation of STU. 

The ATS delegation visited the GTIIT campus and STU campus. The guests also discussed with STU faculty on the topic of Chinese and western medicine.
