In view of the current situation of French majors in Northwest China, it was proposed in the talks to first strengthen the in-depth cooperation between French majors in XISU and LZU, and to establish a French academic community in Northwest China when the opportunity is ripe in the future, and to strengthen contacts by organizing regional French academic activities, establishing university level exchanges, and jointly training postgraduates. It was also put forward in the talks to unite XISU and LZU, the two time-honored universities, to flourish the specialty of French in Northwest China.
