The 1st Africa China World Bank Education Forum is scheduled to take place in Beijing and Shanghai from July 10 to 15, 2017. The Forum will be on Higher Education and Science and Technology. The initiative aims to strengthen the tripartite relationship as well as forge new partnerships between leading universities, science and technology research institutes, and the private sector of the two regions.  Key partners of the forum include the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Shanghai Jiaotong University.

Key objectives of this forum are:

 

  • To learn about the frontier of science and technology in agriculture, renewable energy, ICT, health, railway, education, and other sectors in China
  • To share lessons and practical approaches in teaching, learning, research, innovation and technology transfer, for developing technical and scientific capability in higher education
  • To share policy and practices in university governance and management
  • To form new partnerships and explore creative modalities of collaboration at different levels between the government agencies, education and training institutions and the private sector.

 

A prominent development partner for Africa

Several Chinese institutions have built partnership with African institutions financed by the World Bank projects. For example, the University of Addis Ababa’s African Railway Education & Research Institute (ARERI) is cultivating partnership with the Southwest Jiaotong University and Shanghai Jiaotong University in China, East China Normal University is partnering with the Nelson Mandela Institution of Science and Technology in Tanzania. In addition, Shanghai Jiaotong University has announced 10 scholarships (5 PhD and 5 Masters programs) to ACE students or faculty starting in September 2017. 

These partnerships have turned out to be mutually beneficial. Africa could potentially benefit from learning the approaches, methods and strategies of innovative Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to accelerate their economic growth and improve cost-efficiency of relevant reforms.
