Post Time:06/02/2017 Browse Number:

  Faustin Archange Touadéra is currently President of the Central African Republic (CAR) and in August 2005, attended the Seminar for Presidents of Universities from French-Speaking African Countries at Zhejiang Normal University. The seminar was hosted by ZNU, and the attendants were of the highest level among all of the foreign aid educational training programs.

  Then, Faustin attended the seminar as the President of Bangui University, CAR. During the seminar, he gave high praise to ZNU for its scientific management, reasonable curriculum, high-quality courses, and considerate visiting plan. Faustin revealed that his time at the seminar helped him form a comprehensive view of the reforming experiences of China’s higher education, as well as of the operation and management of Chinese universities, which provided new insights into higher education reform in his own country.

  Faustin also signed a memorandum of cooperation with ZNU after reaching an agreement with Professor Xu Hui, the president of ZNU at the time. Faustin expected to use the seminar as an opportunity to strengthen exchanges and cooperation between universities from two sides.

  Faustin was elected President of CAR in 2016. Later, during his meeting with officers in the Chinese Embassy, he mentioned this pleasant experience at the seminar. This shows the importance of assisting foreign countries in education as part of the nation’s foreign aid program. (Translated by Kang Meiling, edited by Xiamara Hohman)
