The Wageningen Alumni Chapter China is established to engage alumni in China with one another and with Wageningen University. Enthusiastic Wageningen Alumni were actively involved in making the Wageningen Alumni Chapter China possible and continue to be active in the Supervisory Board and Executive Board.
At the launch of the chapter on 2 December 2014 prof. Louise O. Fresco (President of the Executive Board of Wageningen UR) stresses the importance of continuing the dialogue with alumni in China and elsewhere. "An alumni chapter provides very good means to re-establish the relationships now and in the future".

After a round of introduction and a look back at the successful celebration of the WUR centennial in China the SB members discussed the intention to expand the Wageningen Alumni Chapter China by setting up different Regional Sub Chapters throughout the country, starting in Nanjing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and the Wuhan region. Further ideas about the alumni chapter were exchanged. WUR alumni relations officer, Denise Spiekerman, thanked all the new and re-elected board members for their willingness to actively partake in the Wageningen Alumni Chapter China and expressed the support of the chapter by the NL alumni office.
