China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE) delegation visits NSW

Date: 24 November 2017

The NSW Government’s StudyNSW supported the recent visit from the China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE), the peak body for international educational exchanges and cooperation. CEAIE brought with them a senior delegation comprised of 35 of China’s best universities. Macquarie University hosted the delegation and on the occasion of their visit organised the ‘China-Australia International Mobility Forum’.

The Hon Jonathan O’Dea, Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier and Treasurer, welcomed the delegates to NSW. He said the visit was an opportunity for CEAIE to connect with Australian universities and discuss higher education cooperation. Chinese and NSW delegates attending the forum were also addressed by the Consul-General of The People’s Republic of China, HE Mr Gu. Further sessions focused on two-way student mobility; Chinese and NSW support for student mobility; research cooperation; and student mobility and employability. Two students from The University of Newcastle also presented on their personal experience studying in China.

The delegation’s visit to NSW established new relationships between NSW and Chinese universities, and strengthened existing cooperation. StudyNSW looks forward to working with CEAIE in the future to further advance the already strong education relationship between China and NSW.
