My name is Richard. I am from the UK.
We are (an) online platform for international students to choose courses and apply to top Chinese universities and for Chinese universities to do international marketing and recruitment.
So, in last year, there's about 490,000 foreign students in China, and, set as a government target, 500,000 by 2020. There'll be more and more foreign students because universities are rising up the rankings very fast. Economy is also growing. And there (are) more opportunities because of that. So definitely we'll see more and more foreign students as (there is) a lot of momentum already. China is now the biggest study destination in Asia. While the number is increasing, also the quality is increasing. Like, talented people are coming to China from all over the world.
We (are) also like very lucky to get a grant from the Phoenix and got the Phoenix grant from the Chaoyang district in Beijing. And this is a grant of funding to support overseas Chinese here coming back and internationals who want to start a business in China and it's really great to have such support. And China is definitely looking to attract more foreign talent to come.
