Premier Li Keqiang sent a letter of congratulation on Monday to the China-ASEAN Education Cooperation Week that opened in Guiyang, capital of Guizhou province.

For the past 25 years since China established ties with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, people-to-people exchanges, including educational cooperation, have become a new force for the relationship and have shown great prospects for further exchanges, Li said in the letter.

The ongoing China-ASEAN Education Cooperation Year has nearly 300 events that are hosted in major cities from both sides, and China is willing to work with ASEAN countries to learn from each other and support to build a closer community, the premier said.
