The exhibition of “China Campus 2019” was held on Tuesday with the participation of 31 Chinese universities.
It was jointly hosted by China Scholarship Council (CSC), the Chinese embassy in Tunis and Tunisian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
CSC Vice Secretary-General Wang Shenggang said that the Chinese delegation came to Tunisia to introduce China’s higher education and attract more Tunisian youth to study in China.
He said that in 2018 more than 660,000 Chinese students went abroad to study, while about 490,000 foreign students came to China to study. He hoped that Chinese universities would attract more Tunisian students.
At the exhibition, many Tunisian students and teachers consulted with Chinese university representatives to get information about learning and living in China.
Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Slim Khalbous said Chinese universities enjoy high-quality education and facilities, which could attract more Tunisian students to study in China.
