Rutgers China Office and Rutgers School of Social Work Successfully Held the Jiangxi Government Administrators’ Training

To promote the advancement of public administration in China, Rutgers China Office, Rutgers School of Social Work and Huamin Research Center hosted a certificate program to train Chinese government administrators from Jiangxi Province from January 7-25 at the New Brunswick Campus of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.

The Jiangxi delegation was composed of 20 government administrators from various departments, counties and cities in Jiangxi Province. During the training, the participants attended diverse public administration lectures and visited several public institutions including NJ Transit, Essex County Courthouse and the NJ Statehouse. From the lectures and activities, the participants deepened their understanding of the government administration system in United States and expanded their management capacities and skills, which they can apply to their future government work.

“I believed the Jiangxi Delegation spent a pleasant and fulfilling two weeks at Rutgers. Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey has been committed to providing global communication, engaging in collaborative research, establishing ties with international peer institutions and developing international programs and curriculum. I hope all the participants gained useful experience and skills from the first hand public administration lectures and activities,” said Dr. Richard L. Edwards, Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Interim Chancellor of Rutgers University, at the Closing Ceremony.

Zhijian Luo, the group leader of the delegation, Associate Dean of Jinagxi Administrative College, made a speech at the Closing Ceremony. On behalf of the delegation, Mr.Luo expressed their gratitude to the cooperating departments at Rutgers and all the speakers for their support and well prepared lectures.

Jeff (Jianfeng) Wang, Director of Rutgers China Programs and Special Assistant to the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Robert Nolan, Associate Dean for Administration, both gave high praise to this delegation. Jeff said the Jiangxi Delegation is one of the best he ever met and he hopes the participants could implement what they learned here in their home intuitions. This Government Administration Training was the beginning of the collaborative programs held by Rutgers China Office in 2014. To serve as a bridge between United States and China, Rutgers China Office will make more contributions to developing education exchange, research collaboration and other intellectual activities with China.
