Ten Welsh Universities have come together in a new new Consortium to make the expertise of the Welsh university sector available to China.

The group will work with the Municipality of Chongqing to establish the Chongqing-Europe Training Centre before expanding its work with individual organisations in China.
Speaking at the event at Chongqing University of Technology, the First Minister said:

    "I am delighted to be here to witness the launch of the Wales Higher Education Training Consortium.  This is the first time that all ten universities of Wales have come together to create a single, comprehensive offer of training to any part of the world.

    "The fact that this has happened fully recognises the special relationship that Wales has with Chongqing and this offering cannot be matched by any single university in the world.

    "This Consortium will make use of the strengths at different Universities on different subjects so as to provide a tailored service for Chinese partners.  Through the Universities’ vast resources and contacts, the consortium intends to provide a complete support service for governments, institutions, business and individuals across China.  I wish the Training Consortium well and I am sure it has an exciting future ahead of it."
