NZ and Australia increase Chinese collaboration

China has signed separate agreements to link its education system more closely to those in Australia and New Zealand.

In a series of agreements reached during a visit of the Chinese president Xi Jinping from 19 to 21 November, the New Zealand government committed to increasing student exchange between the two countries and to promoting the mutual recognition of qualifications. Similar terms were agreed between China and Australia as part of a wider free-trade agreement between the countries on 17 November.  

The move by Australia and New Zealand acknowledges the importance of strengthening links with the Chinese education market, which is already a significant player in the southern hemisphere.
