On Friday 23 June 2017, the Sub-Committee on Education Cooperation of the Committee of Cooperation between the Ukrainian and Chinese Governments met for the second time. The sub-committee was co-chaired by Liliya Hrynevych, the Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine and Chen Baosheng, the Minister of Education of the People’s Republic of China. Olena Shapovalova, the director of the Ukrainian State Center for International Education, was also part of the sub-committee on the Ukrainian side.

The sub-committee last met five years and much has changed: deeper cultural cooperation, further cooperation and new cooperation agreements were signed between Ukrainian and Chinese Higher Education Institutions, and the exchange of experiences in the area of professional standards development. Both countries are of course very interested in such cooperation due to the high demand of Ukrainian students wishing to study Mandarin Chinese and high school graduates of China wishing to be international students in Ukrainian Higher Education Institutions.

Additionally, as a result of the work of the sub-committee, the quota for Chinese citizens studying in Ukraine on the Ukrainian budget was raised to 120 students, agreements were made on cooperation in the area of technical education, and both parties agreed to work on synchronising their education schedules in order to be able to deliver joint Chinese-Ukrainian double degrees.
