On 7th March 2015, the VUB China Alumni Association organized its launch event at Belgian Embassy in Beijing. More than 60 Chinese VUB alumni from different cities participated in the event, which was commenced with a warm welcome by Belgian Ambassador H.E. Michel Malherbe. The Belgian cuisine and beers served at the reception were highly appreciated and evoked warm memories of the past as VUB students in Brussels. The alumni started sharing stories of their study time with one another. Meanwhile, the newly established WeChat public account of VUB China Alumni Association was launched, which provides an open social media platform for networking among alumni. Apart from the evening event at the embassy, a half-day city tour was organized in Beijing.
Though the event came to an end after two days, the story of VUB alumni has only just started.
