China releases outward facing international education strategy to 2020
There are no surprises in the Chinese government’s latest plan for the country’s international education sector, stakeholders have said, as the blueprint, which aligns with the country’s current Five Year Plan, reflects a shift in focus to be more outward looking. The document, entitled Guidelines on Works in Opening Up the Education Sector in the New Era, lays out the government’s intentions to strengthen China’s image as an attractive study destination, boost the quality of international education provision, and encourage partnerships with foreign education institutions and enterprise.
“Any Chinese institution that has been reluctant to pursue foreign partnerships would, in light of this statement, be having another think about doing so,” said Grok Global CEO Kim Morrison. The PIE News
