China’s resort island province Hainan to host new campus of top Russian technical university​

  • The Chinese campus of the National Research University Moscow Power Engineering Institute will be situated in Hainan province’s Wenchang county
  • Hainan is trying to boost its education sector by wooing prestigious foreign universities with a focus on science, technology, agriculture or medicine

A major Russian technical university is building a 55-hectare (137-acre) campus on the tropical island of Hainan, as the Chinese free-trade zone opens its door to foreign institutions.

The Chinese campus of the National Research University Moscow Power Engineering Institute (MPEI) will be located in Hainan’s Wenchang county, a coastal tourist spot and home to a space station, according to a statement by the campus designer China Academy of Building Research (CABR) last week.

Hainan Daily, a local newspaper, reported in March that the province had struck an agreement with MPEI to set up a local campus.

The move comes amid Hainan’s push to boost its education sector by luring prestigious foreign universities with a focus on science, technology, agriculture or medicine, as well as vocational schools, to set up operations in the free-trade port.

The provincial education department is currently pursuing similar deals with Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences in Germany and École hôtelière de Lausanne, a hospitality management school in Switzerland.
Hainan’s attempt to woo overseas institutions, as part of its free-trade arrangement, stands as an exception in China, where most local governments are trying to reduce foreign influence in the education sector.

MPEI’s Hainan campus also signals the deepening bond between Russia and China amid rising tensions with the US.
Founded in 1930, MPEI is known for its power engineering research. One of its alumni was the late former Chinese Premier Li Peng, who was sent to study at the university from 1948 to 1955 during the Soviet era.

Li, who is called “the most famous graduate of MPEI” on the university’s website, served as president of the foreign student union during his years on campus. He was awarded an honorary doctorate in 1995.

Last year, MPEI received approval from China’s Ministry of Education to set up a joint school with Henan University of Science and Technology in Luoyang city in western Henan province.

CABR’s architecture design arm, which won the bid for MPEI’s Hainan project, said it aims to present a campus design that combines the tropical ecosystem of the island and the rational temperament of the Russian university.

It did not say when the construction work would take place.

Wenchang, home to China’s fourth and southernmost spaceport, is also planning to partner with Chinese aerospace universities – including Northwestern Polytechnical University in Xian, capital of Shaanxi province, and the Harbin Institute of Technology – to establish graduate schools and training bases.

The county said it has also begun talks with overseas institutes such as Ukraine’s National Aviation University to cultivate talent.

China is under growing pressure to shore up its technological competitiveness as the US ratchets up export restrictions against Chinese institutions.

Earlier this month, the Bureau of Industry and Security, an agency under the US Department of Commerce, announced new measures targeting China’s advanced semiconductor industry, including restrictions prohibiting “US persons” from supporting the development or production of chips at certain Chinese firms.

Some Chinese universities, including the Harbin Institute of Technology, have already been previously added to a US trade blacklist, formally known as the Entity List, for “supporting procurement of items for military end-use in China”.

Russians love tropical Hainan, foreign universities are like foreign companies in China, they won't control China's education, actually China can spread her influence through these foreign institutions.

"I will give a simple example: in 2019, 330,000 Russian tourists visited our province, that is, among foreign tourists, every fourth was from Russia,"Hainan province's governor Feng Fei

And Hainan is the only visa free province in China

So what ? If any country want to be truly independent, they should do that, there are some American and European universities there too that should be restricted now. What I am saying have to do with where I live.

The more I argue with you, the more I find you to be a dumb racist honestly.
China doesn't exist in a vacuum, hell, China already is a multiethnic empire since the Tang dynasty.

And you are a hypocrite for criticizing russian in China when you yourself is a chinese living in the West.

I am actually have more of the American and British universities in mind, these two countries are ardent anti-China now. They closed many Confucius institutes in their countries. Maybe, there is another valid perspective on these universities as you said.

Bro, in this case (Tang Dynasty), I disagree with you.

The Tang Dynasty was not xenophobic, they allowed citizens from other ethnic groups to hold important positions in their military system.

Years later, the An Lushan Rebellion is one of the bloodiest uprisings in world history.

And why did the Tang Dynasty lose the battle of Talas? Because in their army there are many traitors (people from other ethnic groups)

There were many people using the Tang Dynasty as an example, persuading China to open up more and import more foreigners. They forgot that the Tang dynasty was only a short-lived superpower, before falling into the pit

Well, we might have to start with the Han too since Han was civic identity, not an ethnic identity.

By the times of the Qing dynasty, the manchu ruler has officially made China to be a multiethnic nation with 4 main ethnics in it (Manchu, Han, Mongol, Hui). It's the price for expansion, China didn't grow big for no reason.

Do act the part and go back to China and protect the soil and education there instead of hollering in Canada.

I don't restrict you from voicing your opinion, I'm calling you a hypocrite for not living in China while speaking about protecting soil and education there.

Act your part instead of hollering in Canada or whatsoever.

Bác có xem Thiên Long Bát Bộ không? Ngày xưa tôi xem Thiên Long, tôi thích nhất là Kiều Phong, đại anh hùng, vì nước vì dân, tiếc là chết bởi chủ nghĩa phân biệt chủng tộc cực đoan.

Lúc đó tôi còn nhỏ, là người theo chủ nghĩa lý tưởng , bị phim truyền hình tẩy não, cho rằng hòa hợp dân tộc mới là đúng, ngăn cách dân tộc là sai, phân biệt chủng tộc là tội ác

Chỉ là lớn lên rồi, nhận thức nhiều, mới hiểu chủ nghĩa phân biệt chủng tộc không phải tự nhiên mà có. Lập tường bất đồng như cách núi ngăn sông, lòng người khó dò, sự khác biệt giữa người và người đôi khi còn lớn hơn cả sự khác biệt giữa người và chó, chứ chưa nói đến sự khác biệt giữa chủng tộc và chủng tộc.

Tôi không định nói nhiều về vấn đề này. Vì khác biệt lập tường, tranh luận tiếp chỉ dẫn tới ngụy biện, vì ai cũng cho bản thân mình là đúng, không ai chịu ai, sau đó công kích và xúc phạm nhau.

Trong vụ tranh luận về Ấn Độ- Trung Quốc hôm qua , tôi ủng hộ quan điểm của bác, nhưng hôm nay, tôi cảm thấy bác đang áp đặt quan điểm của bác lên Trung Quốc trong vụ chủng tộc, thứ hai là bình luận của bác bắt đầu có xu hướng công kích cá nhân rồi.

Tôi không nói đó là lỗi của riêng bác, cũng không nói là bác sai. Ý của tôi là cuộc tranh luận này là hoàn toàn vô nghĩa, quan điểm của họ khác biệt với bác là điều bình thường, không cần phải kích động hay tức giận vì điều đó.
