CAIRO, Dec 8 (MENA) - Minister of Education Tarek Shawki and Chinese Ambassador in Cairo Liao Liqiang reviewed Sunday a project to establish movable classrooms to address school congestion.
The project will be carried out in collaboration with China's NetDragon company.
The meeting took up various aspects of mutual cooperation, including a plan to teach Chinese at Egyptian schools as a second language in cooperation with Confucius Institute.
It also probed a potential project with Chinese telecoms giant Huawei to build local schools for applied technology, which will qualify graduates for work at telecoms companies.
Moreover, the two sides tackled arrangements for establishing a Chinese Luban workshop at the Advanced Technical School for Maintenance Technology in Nasr City to improve technical education.
The projects fall within the framework of China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which is envisioned to open new horizons of cooperation, especially at the educational level.
