SHANGHAI: The Harvard Shanghai Center, opening two years ago, now provides more services for both Harvard students on China exchange programs and prospective Chinese students, said Drew Gilpin Faust, president of Harvard University.

The University has several overseas centers and the one in Shanghai, which is located in Lujiazui, Pudong district, was the biggest, said Faust at a function here.

About 500 Chinese students are now studying at Harvard, and more Harvard students are coming to China on internships and research programs, she said.

The center also facilitates cooperation between Harvard and Chinese universities, she said, citing an ongoing biology program with Shanghai's Fudan University.

The university announced the opening of the Harvard Shanghai Center, funded by the Harvard Business School and the Harvard China Fund, in Shanghai in 2008.

Cooperation between business schools in the two countries were especially crucial for future business success, said Jay Light, Dean of Harvard Business School.

Effective communications between universities and scholars will continue to increase in the future, said William Kirby, chairman of the Harvard China Fund.(Xinhua)
