Business China and Republic Polytechnic Signed Memorandum of Understanding to Nurture China-ready Young Singaporeans

On 24 April, Business China inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Republic Polytechnic (RP) to deepen collaboration on nurturing China-ready young Singaporeans.

One of the highlights of this collaboration is the introduction of the Certificate in China Business Perspectives Programme for RP students. Dr Michael Koh, Deputy Principal of Republic Polytechnic, remarked that through the Programme, the students will become aware, acquire knowledge and gain insights of the Chinese business environment as well as the protocol and culture of the Chinese.

On Business China’s side, “we will bring in relevant networks, partners and resources to provide a holistic perspective for young Singaporeans,” noted Ms Sun Xueling, CEO of Business China.

Both parties will also explore more collaborations via joint seminars and overseas immersion trips to help Singaporean youths develop better understanding on recent developments in China.

The Memorandum of Understanding for the strategic partnership was signed by Ms Sun Xueling, CEO of Business China and Dr Michael Koh, Deputy Principal of Republic Polytechnic.

The ceremony saw a turnout of close to 50 attendees, which included students from different races who expressed their interest in learning more about China, the world’s second largest economy.

This MOU marks the second collaboration that Business China is having with the polytechnics. The first one is with Ngee Ann Polytechnic to launch a certificate in China Readiness programme.
