The speech given by Chancellor Li was inspiring! He warmly welcomed all the new students of GTIIT and said the decision to join GTIIT was wise and forward-looking. GTIIT is the youngest university listed in the Guangdong High Level University Development Program. Currently four disciplines are listed as key disciplines in constructing high-level universities in Guangdong Province. GTIIT has also been designated as the supporting unit for constructing the provincial laboratory of chemistry and fine chemical engineering, which has further established the important academic position of GTIIT in Guangdong and the country.

Chancellor Li said," 'unconventional' and 'creative' are indispensable qualities for you to keep up with the time. Four years might be a short period of time, but may reshape the taste and quality of your life." He encouraged students to participate in social practice actively while devoting to academic studies, improve comprehensive qualities, develop humanity care, and cultivate a kind and loving heart which is both a philosophy of life and a great wisdom.
