KYIV, June 23 (Xinhua) -- The chiefs of 36 major Chinese and Ukrainian universities held a roundtable forum here on Friday to discuss cooperation in higher education and share their experiences.

 

The discussion, which was held at the Kyiv Taras Shevchenko National University, brought together 62 presidents and chancellors of Chinese and Ukrainian universities.

 

While addressing the forum, Peng Long, president of Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU), spoke highly of China-Ukraine higher education cooperation, noting that there are good opportunities to further enhance it.

 

"The prospects for the development of our cooperation have a good background and I hope that we will manage to build bridges of our cooperation even more efficiently," Peng said.

 

In the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative, the Ukrainian Centre was set up in the BFSU in June 2016, Peng said, noting that eight students are currently learning Ukrainian language at the educational facility.

 

Besides, the BFSU has participated in the exhibition titled "Ukrainian Traditional Culture and Painting", which was held in November last year in Beijing, he said.

 

At the forum in Kyiv, the BFSU plans to further deepen its partnership with Ukrainian universities, signing cooperation agreements with Ukraine's National Linguistic University and several other educational establishments, Peng added.

 

Moreover, Rui Zhiyuan, president of Lanzhou University of Technology, said that his university is already reaping fruits from cooperation with Ukrainian partners.

 

"In 2015-2016, we received scholarship programs for student exchanges in five directions, including such areas as material knowledge, welding and construction," Rui said.

 

"We cooperate with Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute, the National Metallurgical Academy of Ukraine, Kyiv University of Construction and Architecture and Ivano-Frankivsk National Technical University of Oil and Gas," he said.
