Title One Belt, One Road- the vehicle for China to become a major education exporter?
Author Xiaozhou (Emily) Zhou - OBHE Associate


“One Belt One Road” is short for the combination of “Silk Road Economic Belt” and “21st century Maritime Silk Road”, two major economic and cultural initiatives proposed by the President Xi in 2013 during a tour of Asia. Ministers envisage burgeoning bilateral and multilateral relationships- commercial, cultural and diplomatic- between China and a host of countries along the old “Silk Road” between China and the West.

In August, the Ministry of Education released a document outlining where education fits into OBOR. As is typical for such documents, details are limited but the ambition is clear. Does this mark the beginning of China’s bid to become a world power in higher education?
