Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Chai Xi said, ‘I’m very happy that this year there are 48 students get the scholarship, recording the highest number in history.’ The awarding of Chinese government scholarship to Bangladesh students was started in 1976 and since then there have been 288.
Farhana Akter, who has just got a bachelor’s degree from Dhaka University, said, ‘I will go to Nanjing Normal University (NNU) to study Chinese at the end of this month. Before I get the scholarship, I had been studying Chinese in Dhaka University for one year.” Farhana said she will take a one-year Chinese course in NNU and then go to Shanghai to pursue an MBA degree.
She said, ‘Nowadays there are so many Chinese companies in Bangladesh and the relationship between the two countries become closer and closer. I choose to learn Chinese and study in China so that I can get a good job after graduation.’
