This two-day event from 11 -12 September 2017, was co-sponsored by Ministry of Education of China and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region People’s Government.
This event features “Co-build Modern Vocational Education, Share the Prosperity of the Belt and Road “as theme and attracted many representatives from ASEAN member states as well as China regional education institutions. A delegation of four staff including representatives from the marketing department led by Dr Chen Shi, Vice Principal of KLCII, joined some 700 participants from 16 countries at the exhibition and forum.
KLCII set up a booth at the exhibition to showcase KLCII’s range of course offerings from certificate, diploma to post graduate, with added emphasis on early childhood teachers’ education, and its language programmes.
KLCII’s presence attracted a lot of attention from the delegates and many interesting enquiries were received. The Guangxi Foreign Language College expressed strong interest in collaborating with KLCII in early childhood education, and promptly signed an letter of Intent to further develop the relationship.
This is the 3rd time KLCII had participated in an event of such a scale in China, with its first in year 2012.
