Higher Education Leading International Development Effort

In September 2017, Sichuan University welcomed a group of government officials from Guinea. The delegation came to Sichuan University for a short-term training program on government administration and affairs. During the same time, a team of Sichuan University research scholars and administrators went to Nepal to share development experiences with their counterparts in Nepal.

Sichuan University (SCU) is one of the top research universities in China. It is located in Chengdu, Sichuan province. SCU has been a leader in developing international collaborations outside of China. Its international activities are no longer limited to student exchanges, education abroad and sponsoring visiting scholars. It has been extended to professional development beyond higher education.  Chinese higher education institutions are playing more important roles in China’s world development strategy and building international relations.
