Six Jamaican students were presented with scholarships by the Chinese Government last week, to pursue higher education in China.
Under the scholarship, the students, three males and three females, will be able to study at several universities across China. The participants were recruited under the full and partial Chinese Government scholarship programme.
Addressing the recipients at the awards ceremony in Kingston, Ambassador of China to Jamaica, Chen Jinghua, praised the participants, noting that the scholarships sought to develop co-operation and exchanges in various avenues, which were beneficial to any society.
He said that the Chinese Government scholarship scheme was established to strengthen mutual understanding and friendship; and develop co-operation and exchanges in education, science and technology, culture, economy and trade and other fields, between China and other countries. source
