On April 21, 2015, ICHEI’s project team visited the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris and had a meeting with Dr. Qian Tang, Assistant Director-General for Education; David Atchoarena, the Director of the Division for Policies and Lifelong Learning Systems; and several other UNESCO officers. The group discussed and reached a consensus on critical issues about the Framework Funds-in-Trust Agreement between Shenzhen and UNESCO in support of UNESCO’s activities for higher education development in Asia and Africa, as well as on the proposal of establishing a UNESCO Category 2 Education Centre in Shenzhen to promote higher education innovation through Information and Communication Technologies. The UNESCO officers expressed their confidence in both the prospect of the Funds-in-Trust to make a positive impact on higher education in Asia and Africa and the proposed Centre as a necessary complement to the global network of UNESCO Category 2 Centres. They commented that both projects were in alignment with the strategic efforts of UNESCO instrengthening the collaboration with China.
