As the biggest bilateral Chamber of Commerce for China, we are committed to promoting mutual understanding between Belgium and China. What better way to do this than to focus on higher education, where the next generation of young people will be trained and learn to broaden their minds? What does the academic cooperation between our two countries look like, and which China projects do different Belgian universities offer?
