Xiangtan University’s (XTU) 60th Anniversary Celebration was held on September 10, 2018. Hunan Governor Xu Dazhe attended the celebration. 
 
Governor Xu, on behalf of the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee and the People’s Government of Hunan Province, congratulated all the XTU teachers, students, administrative staff, and alumni at home and abroad on the anniversary, and extended the festive greetings to all the teachers and educators in Hunan.
 
He said, “XTU is a university that Chairman Mao Zedong advocated to establish and develop. He inscribed the name of the university and bade university administrators to ‘do their best to make a success of it’. President Xi Jinping also has earnest expectation of running Xiangtan University well. This implies his deep feelings of older generations of proletarian revolutionists.”
 
Governor Xu fully affirmed XTU’s achievements made in reform and development. He pointed out that facing the new situation and in the new era, XTU’s advancement should also enter a new phase. He expected that XTU would keep in mind the earnest expectations of General Secretary Xi Jinping, and remain true to our original aspiration and keep our mission firmly in mind. XTU should carry forward the fine traditions, persist in the virtues of the people, and dare to reform and innovate, striving to make itself better and more distinctive, he added.
 
He promised that the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee and the Hunan Provincial People’s Government would continue to support XTU’s progress as always. Departments of Xiangtan Municipal People’s Government at various levels and that of Hunan Provincial Government should further strengthen their support in discipline construction, scientific research, sci-tech results transformation, and university-enterprise cooperation. He called for intensive and pragmatic measures to assist Xiangtan University in building itself the one with distinctive disciplines and among the first-class universities.
