China Daily (Hong Kong) - - YOUTH | CAMPUS -

The South-South Co­op­er­a­tion and De­vel­op­ment In­sti­tute at Pek­ing Univer­sity hosted its first grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony on July 6 in Bei­jing.

Twenty-six gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials, in­clud­ing 10 women, from 16 de­vel­op­ing coun­tries who have fin­ished their master’s pro­gram at­tended the cer­e­mony and talked about their ex­pe­ri­ences at the univer­sity.

The in­sti­tute is a plat­form for de­vel­op­ing coun­tries to dis­cuss dif­fer­ent eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment mod­els, a place to ex­change ideas about how to elim­i­nate poverty and achieve mod­ern­iza­tion.

The in­sti­tute was es­tab- lished in April last year, af­ter Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping de­clared the plan to open such an in­sti­tute at the High-level Roundtable on South-South Co­op­er­a­tion co-hosted by China and the United Na­tions at the UN head­quar­ters in New York on Sept 26, 2015. It is to deepen the co­op­er­a­tion be­tween China and the other de­vel­op­ing coun­tries from sup­port on fi­nance and engi­neer­ing to com­mu­ni­ca­tion on de­vel­op­ment of in­tel­li­gence and ideas.
