Leadership of the “Double Top”
Utilizing the “Double Top” Universities as the main theme and the iHarbour’s concept at the heart and soul of this project, we aim to create a world-class university. The goal is to develop into a powerhouse of teaching and scientific research, to bring first class staff, to foster creative talents and demonstrating a culture for excellent innovation by elevating XJTU to a world-class university with Chinese characteristics.
Demonstration of Urbanization
In tandem with the “Thirteenth Five-Years Plan”, the birth of the Wisdom Uni-Town as a new economic town, exhibiting sophisticated and exquisite architecture and city planning, would make for an excellent demonstration of the new style of urbanization centers in China.
Shaping a New Brand
IHarbour is poised to gradually spreading influence throughout the province and Western China as well as the “Belt and Road” regions. IHarbour will incorporate the “one core with multiple sub-cores, harbour and wharf”. This is the materialization of the ideals of XJTU and the creation of a novel enterprising resource, by transforming Shaanxi from a resources-based output to a whole new different line of exports comprising of brands, services and capital. This is the “Two Fundamental Transformations”.
