Finally, President Sun Xiaoping emphasized the implementation of the principle “Carry out the international education moderately and soundly”. He noted that international education is an important task that serves the national strategy, so we should not only be fully aware of its significance to construction and development of SAU, but also work with spirit of utter devotion. At the same time, he put forward that reasonable teaching incentive mechanism should be introduced so as to guarantee the teaching input and teaching achievements and then can create the external environment for the teaching subject’s teaching behavior with high quality.
