Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) is based in the city of Suzhou.
Economic data published by a US think tank has stated that Suzhou, the city where Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) is based, is overall the best performing city in China.
The Milken Institute, a non-profit US-based think tank, launched its inaugural ‘Best-Performing Cities in China’ report, which delivers a data-driven framework highlighting the economic performance of Chinese cities.
Overall, Suzhou topped the ranking list, scoring highly in job growth and high-value industry jobs. Shanghai was ranked 7th overall with Beijing in 36th place.
According to the Milken Institute, the analysis reveals it was dynamic economies like the one in Suzhou that topped their research, this includes “diversified industries, a focus on high-tech, improved transportation networks, continued efforts to develop infrastructure and the talent pool, and the ability to attract foreign investment.”
Year in China
The University of Liverpool’s ‘Year in China’ programme will give students from subjects across the campus the opportunity to spend a year in Suzhou at XJTLU. Students will take classes in Chinese language, society, culture and history.
Staff and sudents will be able to find out more about the ‘Year in China’ programme which will launch at the annual Study Abroad Fair on 5 November.
