On the Issues Concerned with China-Africa Education Cooperation.
This paper was presented at the China-Africa Links Workshop 2006 at the Center on China's Transnational Relations of the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology. "This paper reviews the course of Sino-African Education Cooperation from 1949 till present, and also summarizes its characteristics, experience, and lessons. The more-than-50-year Sino-African Education Cooperation has not incurred great cost, but has produced great effect. Nowadays, Sino-African education cooperation mainly is China's aid to Africa, not yet bidirectional. If China makes good use of African education resource, such as inviting African scholars to give lectures in China and dispatching Chinese scholars to Africa for advanced studies, it will greatly help training China's Africa scholars. China hasn't paid much attention to people-to-people exchanges in education, and this kind of development, such as dispatching a number of volunteers to Africa, will add new meanings to the development of Sino-African relationship. A deepening and effective development of Sino-African cooperation in education and culture will help counteract the adverse effect of Sino-African relationship."
