DHAKA, May 13 (Xinhua) -- The 4th Chinese Education Exhibition opened here Thursday in Bangladesh's North-South University with the purpose to attract more Bangladeshi students to study in China.

Dilip Barua, industry minister of Bangladesh, said at the opening ceremony he is happy that so many Chinese universities come to Bangladesh to showcase their education resources and prospects.

"I firmly believe through this exhibition the deep-rooted bilateral relation and cooperation between Bangladesh and China especially in the field of education and knowledge sharing will be strengthened further in the days ahead," he said.

Zhang Xianyi, Chinese ambassador to Bangladesh, said good education makes good future. "In modern society, education plays a vital role in promoting the advancement of science and technology, " he said.

Zhang said as the frequency of the education exchange between the two countries increases day by day, more and more Bangladeshi students want to know about the Chinese universities and eager to get an opportunity to further their studies in China.
