Saudi Arabia and China on Friday agreed to include the Chinese language as a curriculum at all stages of education in schools and universities across the Kingdom.
The proposal aims to strengthen friendship and cooperation between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the People’s Republic of China and to deepen the strategic partnership at all levels, Saudi Press Agency said on Friday.
The move seeks to forge a strategic partnership in order to achieve the aspirations of both Saudi and Chinese leadership and to seize the promising opportunities between their peoples.
The inclusion of the Chinese language in Saudi schools and universities will enhance the cultural diversity of students in the Kingdom and contribute to the achievement of the future national goals in the field of education in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.
Chinese language’s introduction into the Saudi curricula is an important step toward opening new academic horizons for students at the various educational levels in Saudi Arabia.
Learning the Chinese language will serve as a bridge between the peoples of the two countries that will contribute to promoting trade and cultural ties.
