China's surging number of Belt and Road Initiative projects in overseas markets have spurred big demand for multi-disciplinary specialists, experts said.
Wang Yiwei, professor of international relations at the Renmin University of China, said that the BRI aims at building a global community with a shared future, and that goal requires industry people to have not just domain expertise but a thorough understanding of languages, cultures, and many other aspects.
Wang made his comments in a congratulatory letter to the third Belt and Road Higher Education Research Conference, an industry event featuring discussions on talent training for Chinese companies in their overseas BRI projects, and those that have the need to hire local employees.
Wang Yiwei is a professor at the School of International Studies at China's Renmin University.
