A delegation from Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU), led by Xi Guang, vice president of XJTU, visited the ACCA London headquarters and Lancaster University in the United Kingdom, and participated in the Council of the Confucius Institute at the University of Liverpool and visited University College London, Queen Mary University of London, and the University of Manchester from Nov 28 to Dec 1.

The purpose of the visit was to promote friendly exchanges and cooperation with British universities and educational institutions.

On the morning of Nov 29, the delegation visited the ACCA headquarters in London, United Kingdom. Xi Guang and the delegation held talks with Alan Hatfield, the executive director of professional qualifications quality and innovation, and Ann Lam, the director of professional qualifications.
