Taipei, Jan. 7 (CNA) National Taiwan University (NTU) will seek greater internationalization, including the establishment of an international campus, NTU president-elect Kuan Chung-ming (管中閔) said Sunday.

Kuan said in a meeting with press that the international campus will be established on NTU property on Xuzhou Road in Taipei and will be financed mainly by the school.

Through cooperation with various NTU partners, competitive fields of study can be introduced, Kuan said.

For example, in the field of marketing, NTU can focus on artificial intelligence, precision marketing and other key areas, he said.

In terms of international cooperation strategy, reference can be made to universities overseas, which have built joint institutes with several of the world's top universities, Kuan said.

Kuan, a former minister of the National Development Council (NDC), was elected Friday as the new president of NTU, one of Taiwan's most prestigious institutes of higher education.
