People-to-people Bonds

50. The Government will continue to promote co-operation and exchanges in education to help Hong Kong students gain a better understanding of the countries along the Belt and Road, thereby strengthening people-to-people bonds. New initiatives include updating or fine-tuning primary and secondary school curricula and producing appropriate teaching resources, providing students with more opportunities to study foreign languages, increasing the quotas to 5 600 for students’ Mainland exchange programmes along the Silk Road this year, and encouraging, through the Quality Education Fund, students to engage in exchange activities in the Mainland and countries along the Belt and Road.

51. The Government set up the Hong Kong Scholarship for “Belt and Road” Students (Indonesia) this academic year. In the next academic year, there will be two “Belt and Road” scholarships funded by private donations for students from Malaysia and Thailand.
