BEIJING, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- A total of 30 university students from Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica are in China for a training program offered by tech giant Huawei.
The program, called "Seeds for the Future," is aimed at spreading knowledge, increasing awareness of and interest in information and communication technology, and encouraging broad participation in digital communities, according to the company.
The students have visited the company's office in Beijing and its headquarters in Shenzhen during the two-week program, which will end on Sept. 20.
It offers Latin American students a great opportunity to experience technological advances that China has made, said José Luis Bernal, Mexican ambassador to China.
Jordan Madden, a Jamaican student at the University of the West Indies, said he was excited about the opportunity. "Since arriving in Beijing, I've been able to see so many technologies, which have given me a lot of ideas that I hope I can bring to Jamaica," he said.
"There are endless possibilities for 'future seeds,' and I hope everyone can learn from this program and contribute to the development of information technology in your countries," said Zhang Ruijun, vice president of Huawei's Latin American operations.
By the end of 2018, more than 30,000 students from over 400 universities around the world have benefited from the program, including some 4,700 students invited to China for training.
