The delegation was received by OBOR personnel and learned about the research and activities of the OBOR Programme and the FLJS China Programme.  During the visit, Mrs Justice Jiang Xinhua (4th from left, top photo), Vice President of the Higher People's Court of Xinjiang Autonomous Region, expressed particular interest in establishing future collaboration in light of an OBOR-themed forum she recently hosted (see 'Related websites' links in Chinese on the right).

Among the Oxford sites visited by the delegation were: All Soul's, where College Fellow Professor Andrew Burrows provided an exclusive tour of the College and the Codrington Library and discussed legal issues including the topic of unjust enrichment; St Hugh's College, where College Principal The Rt Hon Dame Elish Angiolini (centre, top photo) hosted traditional afternoon tea at her residence and shared her professional experience as the former Lord Advocate and Solicitor General of Scotland; the newly-established Dickson Poon China Centre, where Centre Fellow Dr Annie Nie (far left, top photo) gave a guided tour of the modern and state-of-the-art building as well as the Bodleian KB Chen Library.
