Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) Vice President Zhang Jie met with Luis María Sabadell Bizantino, vice president of the Equatorial Guinea Scientific and Technological Research Council (CICTE), and German Ekua Sima Abaga, Equatorial Guinea’s Ambassador to China, in Beijing on June 8.

In order to promote cooperation in science and education with Africa, CAS began to build the Kenya-based China-Africa Joint Center for Research and Education in 2013. The project is going smoothly, and progress made in agricultural demonstration has received positive feedback from the Kenyan side.

Thanks to the China-Africa Joint Center for Research and Education, CAS affiliates have enrolled more than 50 African students, said Zhang, adding that he hopes even more students from Equatorial Guinea will join CAS for further studies.

The two sides will begin with cooperation on talent cultivation. They will go on to actively explore opportunities for long-term collaboration that will benefit both sides.
