Donation to China Eastern Normal Uni to Develop VET
China Eastern Normal University (Huadong) received RMB100m (US$15m) from its PhD alumni DING Zuyi, the founder and CEO of E‑House (China) Holdings Limited (Yiju), a comprehensive property trading platform. The firm was once NASDAQ listed, but has been delisted.
It is currently listed on the Hong Kong Stock Market. The donation aims to help the university enhance its VET institute. An alliance between 31 VET providers was established in 2020, organized by Huadong’s VET institute. It includes many top Chinese Normal Universities with a focus on training teachers.
