Chinese President Xi Jinping has called for more efforts in government work on overseas studies to cultivate talent in the drive to achieve national rejuvenation.

Xi gave the instruction to a conference on promoting work on Chinese students studying overseas and foreigners receiving education in China. The conference was held on Dec. 12 and 13 in Beijing.

Xi said he hoped Chinese overseas students could open their eyes to the world and study hard to contribute wisdom to the country.

China has sent more than 3 million students to study abroad since 1978, when the country started its reform and opening-up drive. About 360,000 international students are studying in China.

Premier Li Keqiang also encouraged promoting overseas education.

Chinese overseas students should work hard to master advanced knowledge and technology. The government should also improve service to foreign students in China to enhance international friendship and exchange, Li said.

He instructed the government to provide a sound environment for returned overseas students so they can become a new force in business and innovation.
