Sun Baoguo, NPC deputy and president of Beijing Technology and Business University:
In the past 40 years, China’s higher education has become more affordable and accessible to ordinary people, and has a wide coverage in economically developed cities such as Beijing and Shanghai. Now we are fully capable of expanding the college/university enrollment of students from rural and poor areas without detriment education quality to the principle of education equality. This is strategically important for the country as a whole, and is also an inherent need of higher education institutions. I hope all families and children will be given the opportunity to receive higher education and pursue a brighter future.
