Universities Australia (UA) has a long standing close relationship with its counterpart organisation in China, The China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE). UA and CEAIE signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in October 1998, which was renewed in 2002, 2005, 2008 and 2012. The purpose of this agreement is to promote cooperation which will advance teaching, research, scholarship and management in their member institutions.

UA Chief Executive, Belinda Robinson, met with the CEAIE in Beijing over the 3-4th November 2013 to renew an agreement ensuring the continuation of our joint leadership training and shadowing programs, covering the China Australia Middle Managers Program (CHAMMP), the China Australia Executive Leadership Program (CAELP) and a Joint Higher Education forum.

Meetings were held with the Secretary General, Mr Shao Wei, and the Deputy Secretary General, Mr Lin Zuoping, to discuss the implementation and success of past programs under the agreement and to plan for the development of future programs. The first program to take place under the renewed agreement in 2014 will be the CHAMMP. As part of the visit, Ms Robinson also attended the International Student Mobility Forum hosted by the CEAIE, where Anne Baly, International Group Manager, Department of Education, was a keynote speaker.

Details of the programs conducted under the MoU and associated work plan can be found in the pages below.
