Chinese Ambassador to Jordan Chen Chuandong met with Jordanian doctoral graduates Ahmad Nayef Abdalla Alkhraisha and Raed Ali Mohamad Abdalqader from Peking University's Institute of South-South Cooperation and Development (ISSCAD) in 2021 in Amman on Aug 9.
Chen awarded the two students with graduation certificates and diplomas from the ISSCAD.
Chen congratulated them on the successful completion of their studies and encouraged them to put their studies into practice and to be participants in Jordan's reform and development, envoys for the China-Jordan friendship, and practitioners of South-South cooperation.
He said that the ISSCAD is an important initiative of China to promote the building of a community with a shared future for mankind and international development cooperation. It's also a conducive platform for developing countries to explore a modernization path suitable for their own conditions and to exchange with and learn from each other.
Alkhraisha and Abdalqader thanked the Chinese government and people, saying that they will never forget their valuable experience at the ISSCAD.
They said that during their study in China, they had in-depth exchanges and discussions with Chinese experts and scholars and their counterparts from other developing countries, visited various places to get a more comprehensive understanding of a real China, and witnessed the great achievements of China's development and the successful experience of fighting COVID-19.
They said in the future they will apply what they have learned to their practical work to better serve the economic and social development of Jordan and better promote China-Jordan friendship and mutually beneficial cooperation.
According to the Economic and Commercial Office of China's Embassy in Jordan, nine Jordanian students are currently pursuing doctoral or master's degrees at the ISSCAD or will soon be enrolled.
