Over the two days, dozens of experts and scholars from Thailand, China, the United Kingdom, Russia and other countries conducted in-depth analysis and research on four major themes. There were presentations on the impact of the epidemic on the internationalization of education and corresponding cures, on the trends and countermeasures of diversification strategies for studying abroad in the context of the Belt and Road Initiative, on the influence of technological advances on education and their role as a boost, as well as on the exploration of new ideas for spreading traditional Chinese culture overseas. The authors of the keynote reports generally agreed that efforts should be made to further enhance the understanding of the importance of international exchange and cooperation in education against the backdrop of regular pandemic prevention and control, adhere to the concept of empathy and the win-win approach, innovate the mode of international cooperation in education, carry out all-round and multi-dimensional exchanges and cooperation, and promote the deepened development of international education cooperation.

The seminar on “Reflection and Development of International Education in the Post-pandemic Period” is a master-studded gathering, creating an atmosphere of intellectual earnestness. As a combination of professionalism, theory and practice, it is highly fruitful. Meanwhile, it is expected to provide new ideas on education exchange and cooperation for China-ASEAN and the Belt and Road construction in the post-pandemic era; to build an international exchange platform for higher education and elementary education cooperation, which will exert positive influence on enhancing friendship between China and ASEAN countries, and on strengthening cultural and educational exchanges across regions.
