Düs­sel­dorf, 24.03.2023

Sup­port in the field of edu­ca­tion is an import­ant part of the Weiqiao Pion­eer­ing Group’s com­mit­ment in China. With the “Weiqiao Fund Pro­ject for Excel­lent Teach­ers”, it sup­ports a pro­ject at the Beijing Nor­mal Uni­ver­sity togeth­er with the Ship­ing Pub­lic Wel­fare Found­a­tion, which it founded.

On March 14, the dona­tion cere­mony for the “Weiqiao Fund Pro­ject for Excel­lent Teach­ers” took place at Beijing Nor­mal Uni­ver­sity. Attendees included Chuntian Li, Deputy May­or of Bin­zhou City, Bo Zhang, CEO of Weiqiao Pion­eer­ing Group and Co-Chair­man of Ship­ing Pub­lic Wel­fare Found­a­tion, and Yong Deng, Co-Chair­man of the Ship­ing Pub­lic Wel­fare Found­a­tion, as well as Jian­ping Cheng, Chair­man of the Uni­ver­sity Coun­cil of Beijing Nor­mal Uni­ver­sity, among others.

Dur­ing the cere­mony, Jian­ping Cheng expressed his sin­cere grat­it­ude to the Ship­ing Found­a­tion for their gen­er­ous dona­tion. He intro­duced the university’s “Excel­lent Teach­ers Pro­ject” (offi­cially named the: “Ori­ent­a­tion and Train­ing Pro­gram for Excel­lent Teach­ers in Less Developed Areas in Cent­ral and West­ern China”) and its goals of address­ing the chal­lenges of edu­ca­tion devel­op­ment in rur­al areas and pro­mot­ing the con­struc­tion of a high-qual­ity edu­ca­tion sys­tem. The estab­lish­ment of the “Weiqiao Fund Pro­ject for Excel­lent Teach­ers” will con­trib­ute to the achieve­ment of these goals.

In his speech, Bo Zhang expressed the import­ance of edu­ca­tion devel­op­ment and men­tioned in this con­text the aim of the Ship­ing Found­a­tion: “Entre­pren­eur­ship for the coun­try and bene­fit for the people”. Weiqiao and the Ship­ing Found­a­tion will jointly assume social respons­ib­il­ity and fully sup­port sci­entif­ic edu­ca­tion to cul­tiv­ate out­stand­ing tal­ents, with a spe­cial focus on rur­al areas.
