Scholars urged to learn Chinese culture
Students going to China to start their studies on scholarships from the Chinese Embassy have been urged to learn a lot about the country’s culture.
This encouragement came Monday night from Minister of Education Ronald Jones as he thanked the Government of China for providing the scholarships.
Jones said that over the years several Barbadians had benefited from the scholarships which were fully funded by the government of China.
“Over the years, several Barbadian students have been going off to China being exposed to areas of renewable energy, mechanical engineering, architecture [and] traditional medicine,” Jones told the students. (AH)
