China's top education authority signed memorandums of understanding in Beijing on Tuesday with several provinces and regions of the country to facilitate their educational cooperation with countries along the Belt and Road Initiative.

The signing ceremony is one of the efforts by the Ministry of Education to prepare for the upcoming Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, which will be held in Beijing on May 14 and 15.

Upon signing the MOUs, officials from Jilin, Heilongjiang, Shaanxi and Qinghai provinces, Inner Mongolia autonomous region and Qingdao, a city in Shandong province, promised to fully use their educational resources to serve the construction of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road.

They also expressed their determination to contribute to the establishment of an educational community in participating countries through in-depth exchanges and cooperation and nurturing talent.

To boost China's educational cooperation with countries along the Belt and Road, the ministry issued a plan in July, and since September has signed MOUs with several provinces, regions and cities involved in the initiative.

According to the MOUs, the ministry will offer participants support in their student exchanges, setting up educational institutions and conducting regional research.
