China extends invitation to higher education students

China is bent on establishing relations in Morocco. Having initiated more than 80 businesses in the Kingdom, the Asian country is now opening up its higher education system to Moroccan students, writes Amira El Masaiti for Morocco World News.

The announcement was made at the “China Higher Education Exhibition” on 11 May at Mohammed V University in Rabat. Organised for the first time in Morocco, the exhibition aims to showcase Chinese higher education institutions, informing Moroccan students about opportunities to study in China. The exhibition highlighted 22 renowned universities from around the country, specialising in the fields of transport, foreign languages, finance, industry, geology, science, aeronautics and other fields of study.

With the inauguration of a new Confucius Institute in Tangier last March, Morocco became the first Arab country with three of the Chinese state-affiliated educational organisations.
