  • [01] Education minister in China on official visit

  • [01] Education minister in China on official visit

    Greek Education Minister Marietta Yiannakou arrived in China on Thursday for an official visit that kicked off outside the Greek Studies Centre at Beijing's University of Foreign Languages.

    Yiannakou is in Beijing at the invitation of Chinese Education Minister Zhou Ji and will sign a memorandum for bilateral cooperation in education between Greece and China on Friday.

    Standing outside the Greek Studies Centre, with a sign in incongruously familiar Greek script, Yiannakou stressed that its existence met Greece's efforts to propagate both the modern and ancient Greek languages.

    The minister also noted that the Athens Olympics had been an opportunity to strengthen ties between Greece and China, two countries linked by their long history.

    On Thursday, Yiannakou met with the authorities of the university, who expressed great interest in Greece's Olympic Education programme.
