Personnel from various local PSB offices in Tibet were on hand to answer questions and display explanatory banners and placards. The Lhasa PSB also invited Tibet’s first registered foreign NGO, Germany’s NIMA, to attend the event and assist in the activities. (Note: NIMA is the only registered representative office in Tibet.) 7,000 people participated in the event, 4,600 pieces of promotional literature were handed out, and 2,430 questions were answered.

The Jiangxi PSB Foreign NGO Management office recently sent personnel to both Jiangxi Agricultural University and the Jiujiang City Bureau of Education to better explain how educational entities should cooperate with foreign NGOs under the Foreign NGO Law, and to receive suggestions and comments.

A representative from the university discussed the school’s international exchange efforts in recent years, and the PSB referenced relevant provisions in law. The two sides also shared their thoughts on how to perfect the “Method for Jiangxi Agricultural University to Manage Foreign NGO Activities on Campus.” (Note: According to MPS Data, as of January 2, 2019, Jiangxi Agricultural University has not served as a Chinese Partner Unit for any temporary activities.)

At the Jiujiang Bureau of Education, the PSB met with Bureau leaders as well as individuals from the Department of International Cooperation to discuss how the Bureau should guide schools’ cooperation with foreign NGOs.
