The study tour will serve as an opportunity for participants from the 8 CFIT countries to learn about China’s experiences in using ICT to improve the quality of education and allow representatives from the CFIT countries and China to share their lessons learnt.

The study tour is being organized in conjunction with an international seminar on girls’ and women’s education that will also be co-organized by UNESCO and the Chinese Government from 1 to 5 September 2015 in Beijing. The international seminar marks the official launching of the new UNESCO-HNA Funds-in-Trust (HFIT) project, aiming to support African and Asian countries to accelerate their progress in gender equality in education. The Director-General of UNESCO and the Chinese leader are also expected to attend the third day of the international seminar (i.e. 4 September 2015).
