First honorary fellowship
About twenty Chinese students, all studying in Wageningen, welcomed the governor of Fujian Province, Saturday 5 May. Huang Xiaojing was in the Netherlands to accept an Honorary Fellowship from Wageningen UR.
The title was introduced recently for international people who are neither alumni of Wageningen UR nor academics, but are nevertheless promoting Wageningen in their home region for its importance in agriculture and environment. The governor was the first to receive the fellowship. Because the town of Wageningen was celebrating Dutch Liberation Day the ceremony took place in Utrecht, at the office of Cinmar, a company that has several projects in Fujian province. The Chinese delegation visited other companies as well, including the Aalsmeer Flower Auction, Schiphol Airport and dairy company Campina.
