He called on BFSU graduates to strengthen capacity-building in linguistic competence, become all-around talents, bear in mind the fundamental interests of the country, promote BFSU spirit, take "Chinese solution" into practice, deepen global understanding of China, and contribute to the formation of a worldview with Chinese characteristics.

Yang said he hopes graduates will remain true in their later lives to aspirations held during their studies at the university.
