The rector of UFRA, Herdjania Veras de Lima, presented details of the agreement to the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Luciana Santos, in a hearing on the 22nd of June. The cooperation, which includes research, development and technology transfer, involves UFRA, the Chinese government, Hohai University and Zhuhai Sino Lac Supply Chain.
