Southwest China’s Guizhou Province unveiled a plan to ramp up language expert training to serve its cooperation with Belt and Road countries.
Guizhou will speed up training masters of languages used in ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries with which the province has close cooperation and increase courses on languages of countries in central and south Asia and in central and eastern Europe, according to the plan released by the provincial education department.
Colleges in Guizhou will train more than 100 learners of those languages by 2024. By 2027, at least 300 teachers and students will be funded by the government for further study in Belt and Road countries.
Guizhou aims to enhance cooperation with countries along the Belt and Road with a total turnover of 1.5 billion U.S. dollars in economic and technological projects by 2020.
