US universities remain committed to China – Expert

United States universities will continue to be committed to China, said Brad Farnsworth, vice-president of the American Council on Education’s Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement, in response to the difficulties certain Chinese students and scholars have recently encountered when applying for US visas, reports Xinhua.

“We are definitely seeing a longer time to approve visas, and this has been documented. We have solid evidence to show that the length of time that it takes to approve visas is longer than it used to be,” Farnsworth said in an interview with Xinhua recently.

“It's become more complicated politically,” he said. “We've expressed concerns to our government about the slowdown in visa approvals ... We're in a challenging time now, but I don't think anybody's giving up.”
