AMMAN — Senator Talal Abu Ghazaleh, director of the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Confucius Institute, on Thursday discussed digitisation of education in Jordan with Vice Premier of China’s State Council Liu Yandong at Talal Abu Ghazaleh University, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. 

During the meeting attended by ministers and senior officials, Abu Ghazaleh said that Yandong, as the senior official responsible for education and culture in China, was offered a partnership for the future of knowledge advancement in the Arab world. 

The partnership hopes to facilitate innovation in digital education through producing “Phablet” devices in China that work as a smartphone and a compact laptop, with basic capabilities and affordable prices, to make it a backpack for students in all the schools in the region, an effort Abu Ghazaleh said aims to transform Arab societies into societies of knowledge. 

For her part, the Chinese official highlighted the depth of bilateral relations, noting that they go back to 40 years, announcing the launch of three initiatives for Jordanians, including the presentation of 2,000 books about the Chinese culture and invitations to 50 young people to participate in scout camps in China, as well as 20 scholarships for Jordanian students to study in China. 

Abu Ghazaleh highlighted the depth of Jordanian-Chinese relations and voiced his appreciation of Yandong’s visit.
