Skopje, 20 April 2017 (MIA) - The Chinese government, through the telecommunications company Huawei, donated Thursday a EUR 7-million equipment for high schools in the City of Skopje.
Prime Minister Emil Dimitriev and Chinese Ambassador to Macedonia Yin Lixien officially launched the realization of the donation in IT equipment, infrastructure and technology for 27 high schools in the Macedonian capital.
This capital project is a result of the successful cooperation and long-term partnership between the Macedonian and Chinese Governments, Dimitriev said at the ceremony.
'The project we are launching today is a step forward within the Macedonian Government's efforts to advance the educational system, particularly by introducing an up-to-date information technology that is used in the best educational systems worldwide. It is part of our strategy for creating proficient generations armed with excellent IT skills that will help them to get employment, one that should grant them solid income and stable future,' Dimitriev said.
Ambassador Lixien expressed belief that the project, which should be realized by this September, would set a solid base for advancing the cooperation between Macedonia and China in the sphere of education. lk/17:04
