The year 2021 marks the beginning of China’s 14th Five-Year Plan. This plan charts the next five years, holistically implementing the new development philosophy, by pursuing innovative, coordinated, green, open and shared growth. In this new stage, China will prioritize high-quality development in all aspects empowered by education advances. With another round of revolution in science, technology and industry gaining momentum consistently, the world today is undergoing profound changes unseen in a century. Facing a new journey towards further development, it is recognized that true advances in education would be made best through initiating changes, seeking innovations and embracing collaborations.


For China and countries across the world, opening up for cooperation is the sure path to building a high-quality education system. At present, with education modernization stepping up, international education meets the historical opportunity to fully release its great potential. Global education governance, education resource mobility and high-level research collaborations have become areas that attract the most attention in enhancing the quality of education globalization. It’s time for educators across the globe to adapt to this rapidly-developing environment, explore more energetic driving forces for quality growth and stay committed to expanding channels and spaces for breaking the new ground of international education exchange and cooperation.

The international education community, from more than 40 countries and regions, will be invited to discover the latest innovations, new strategies and best practices, explore opportunities to build institutional partnerships, seek innovative approaches for high-quality development and solutions to global challenges, and draw a blueprint for the future of international education.
