The 2017 Chinese Training Program for Laos Officials between KUST and Laos Completes Successfully

  On 14 June, the graduation ceremony of the Chinese training program for Laos officials was held at School of International Education, Kunming University of Science and Technology (KUST). The 3-month program was completed successfully and 6 Laos officials were awarded certificates of completion.

 


 

  In April 2016, Prof. CHENG Heming, then KUST Vice President, headed a delegation to Laos and made an official visit to the Consulate-general of the People’s Republic of China in Luang Prabang. Consul-general LI Baoguang highly appraised the achievements of KUST in collaborating with the Lao higher education and promoting friendship between China and Laos. He also expressed the willingness to support KUST in enhancing the collaboration with the six provinces in the northern part of Laos in higher education. At that time, Consul-general LI expressed his wishes that KUST would offer a 3-month Chinese training program for the 6 officials from the northern part of Laos.
  As the result of negotiation, 6 Lao officials participated in the Chinese training program at KUST School of International Education from March to June, 2017. This training program has received consistent praise from both the consulate-general and the officials.
