Hong Kong inks education pact with Myanmar

A Belt & Road scholarship for Myanmar citizens will also be offered.

Secretary for Education Choi Yuk-lin and the Deputy Minister of Education of Myanmar Win Maw Tun have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to enhance education collaboration between the two economies, according to a government statement.

The pact provides a framework to facilitate strategic collaboration between the education communities of Hong Kong and Myanmar.

"Signing the Memorandum of Understanding with Myanmar and launching a new Belt & Road Scholarship can further internationalise Hong Kong's higher education sector and enrich our pool of talents with international perspectives, with a view to contributing to the future development of Hong Kong," Choi said in a statement. 

A Belt & Road Scholarship has also been launched for Myanmar students who are interested in pursuing undergraduate studies in Hong Kong for the 2019-20 academic year.

With donations from the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce and CGCC (Foundation) Limited, up to 10 scholarships will be offered annually to students who are enrolled in first-year undergraduate programmes of publicly funded institutions in Hong Kong.

The Belt & Road Scholarship already covers Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.
