Peking University turned into a little piece of Denmark the 23rd of October, 2012, when the Sino-Danish Network opened the doors to the second and largest Danish career and education fair, Denmark Day. Seven Danish universities and nine of Denmark’s largest companies in China participated in the fair. Here they showcased career and education opportunities to Chinese students in order to open up opportunities to establish close contact between students, companies and universities.

Along with Danish food, beverages and images of Denmark the fair gave the Chinese students a little taste of Denmark. At Peking University it was the Danish ambassador, Mr. Friis Arne Petersen, who opened the event.

Dear students, the Danish companies and universities are here for you, to provide you with more knowledge and information and to answer your questions,” said the Ambassador.
