A Macao science and education delegation composed of academicians, university presidents, education officials, sci-tech experts and scholars, and intellectual elites, visited Hunan between December 10 and 12. This visit aimed to strengthen Hunan-Macao sci-tech and educational exchanges and cooperation, and boost the integrated development of science and education in these two places. 
During their stay in Hunan, the delegation made field visits to high-tech enterprises, universities and industrial parks in Changsha and Zhuzhou, and learned more about Hunan’s sci-tech innovation achievements including smart rail trains, machinery manufacturing, and artificial intelligence. They also visited Hunan Museum and Yuelu Academy where they learned about Hunan’s culture and history.
In recent years, the cooperation between Hunan and Macao universities has been strengthened. Until now, Hunan universities like Central South University, Hunan University, Hunan Normal University, and Xiangtan University have signed more than 10 cooperation agreements with such Macao universities as City University of Macau and Macau University of Science and Technology. Positive progress has been made in academic exchanges, scientific research cooperation, and teacher-student visits. In 2019, the number of Macao students studying in Hunan is 133.
