At the end of March 2018, Dean LUR, Huu-Sheng of CBANTU led a delegation to visit Kyoto University, signed a Master Double Degree Program agreement with Dean NAWATA, Eiji of GSAKU, and discussed related cooperation issues. According to this agreement, students from either of the two colleges meet the relevant graduation requirements of both academic systems, they can receive the double master's degrees from the two leading universities in Taiwan and Japan at the same time. This agreement is marking not only a new historic milestone in the special friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two colleges, but also a fruitful outcome of close interactions over the past few years.
In 2012, Prof. ENDO, Takashi, the then-Dean of GSAKU was invited to Taiwan to attend the International Meeting for Deans of the Colleges of Agriculture hosted by CBANTU. In addition to the warm reception and various discussion topics, he particularly expressed deep appreciation for the compassion and generous assistance of Taiwanese people to Japan after the March 11, 2011 Tōhoku Earthquake. In 2013, Kyoto University has launched “The 2x by 2020 Initiative” as its new international strategy, and NTU was selected as one of the key partner schools in Asia. In the same year, KU visited NTU and indicated the willingness to encourage cooperation between universities. At the end of 2013, the first joint NTU and KU symposium was held in Taipei. CBANTU was responsible for the agenda of agriculture-related fields, and welcomed the delegation led by the then-Dean MIYAGAWA, Hisashi of GSAKU. In September 2014, the then-Dean SHYU, Yuan-Tay of CBANTU led faculties to attend the second joint symposium held at Kyoto, and discussed potential cooperation schemes.
Both colleges have established strong trust and friendship via close exchange visits and research cooperation between faculties, student exchange programs, as well as the "Shi-Hon Scholarship Program for Master students". In order to further deepen exchanges between the two colleges and establish long-term stable cooperative relations, the Center for International Agricultural Education & Academic Exchanges (CIAEAE) of CBANTU and the International Office of GSAKU discussed many times and reached a consensus on the details of the Master Double Degree Program. The agreement was signed on March 28, 2018 by two Deans. We are looking forward to this program not only expanding students’ international outlook, promoting academic cooperation and exchanges of the two colleges, but also most importantly maintaining the "絆KIZUNA" between both parties.

Note:
"絆Kizuna" in Japanese means bonds or connections between people, has been chosen as the representative kanji (or Chinese pictorial script) of 2011 for the character that best summed up the year. In the year, the Great Tōhoku Earthquake and tsunami occurred in the northeastern region of Japan on March 11. After the insurmountable disaster, many people have re-experienced the "connections " between people and cherished each other more. On April 11, 2011, the then Japanese Prime Minister KAN, Naoto wrote a letter in foreign media to thank all countries for support. The title was “絆Kizuna – The Bonds of Friendship”. The Chinese version of the letter of acknowledgement issued by the Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association translates “絆” into “Profound Friendship”.
