Business China and Ngee Ann Polytechnic renewed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the China Readiness Programme on 1 July 2019, which signifies a further strengthening of the relationship between the two parties. The MOU was first inked three years ago.

Ms Tin Pei Ling, CEO of Business China shared that the renewal of the MOU highlights the commitment from both sides to nurture China-savvy young Singaporeans. It is encouraging to see a number of non-Chinese students enrolled in the China Readiness Programme since its inception in 2017, with non-Chinese students forming 11% of the 2018 cohort. Ms Tin added that the programme helps students to gain first-hand insights on how to navigate the challenges of working and doing business in China.

Mr Clarence Ti, Principal of Ngee Ann Polytechnic noted that the programme helps to educate and shape students’ perspectives and mould them to become global-savvy Singaporean citizens.

The China-Readiness Programme has awarded certificates to 68 graduates since 2017, with another 65 students due to receive their certificates this year.

The event was attended by close to 30 individuals including Mr Li Jun, General Manager of Qingjian Realty.
