ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – A group of Kurdish students studying Information Technology (IT) at Kurdistan Region universities will be sent to China next week.

The group consists of 20 students, of whom 10 will go to China as part of an agreement between the Kurdistan Regional Government’s (KRG) Higher Education and Scientific Research Ministry and Chinese Huawei, a multinational and telecommunication equipment and services company. The other 10 students are returning to China for the second consecutive year on an invitation from the Chinese Consulate General in Erbil.

“This year we signed an agreement on April 18, 2017 with Chinese Huawei Company to send a number of Kurdistan universities students to the Republic of China for training in the field of ICT," said Dr. Yousif Goran, minister of Kurdistan's Higher Education.


He made his comments in a ceremony organized for the selected students. KRG officials, the Chinese Counsel General in Erbil, Tan Banglin, and Huawei's representative were in attendance at the Rotana Hotel in Erbil. 

Goran described the initiative by the KRG to send IT students to China as “important” as China is becoming a global economic powerhouse.   

“There are very few countries in the world where Chinese companies are not investing,” he said. 

Goran praised the group of students who had gone to China last year on the consulate’s invitation, of whom ten are returning this year. 

When the students returned last year, their ideas on China had completely changed and it was a “great achievement” for the group who took “great advantage” of the programs they took part in, Goran said.

“It is important for students to, besides learning science and information, be acquainted with the experiences and culture of countries in their development and knowledge,” said Goran.
