A new round of cooperation between the China Soong Ching Ling Foundation (CSCLF) and the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) was launched in Beijing on June 16. Li Bin, chairperson of the CSCLF and vice chairperson of the CPPCC National Committee, attended the ceremony.

Li met with Wang Dongjin, chairman and secretary of the Party Leadership Group of CNOOC, right before the ceremony. She expressed appreciation for CNOOC's long-term support for the cause of public welfare, hoping the two sides could draw on experience from their cooperation in nearly two decades to further promote youth education and rural revitalization so as to make joint contribution to the realization of the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation.

Leaders of CSCLF including Vice Chairperson Yu Yanhong, Secretary of the Party Leadership Group and Executive Vice Chairperson Hang Yuanxiang, Member of the Party Leadership Group and Vice Chairman Jing Dunquan, and President of the CNOOC Foundation Zhu Liebin attended the event. Representatives from 27 colleges also participated online or in person.

In his speech, Hang noted that over nearly 20 years, CSCLF and CNOOC have proactively served the growth of young people and contributed to the nation's poverty alleviation campaign. Observing the people-centered philosophy, the CSCLF will continue to carry out its work in accordance with laws and regulations and improve its project operation and public funds management. He said that the foundation is willing to work closely with all partners and together write a new chapter of public welfare and charity in the new era.

Wang echoed that the partnership between the CSCLF and CNOOC over the years has made great contribution to the cause of education and he was honored to be invited to attend the grand gathering marking the CSCLF's 40th anniversary. As a centrally administered state-owned enterprise established in the same year as CSCLF, CNOOC will endeavor to leverage its advantages to promote the great causes of the Party and the people, said Wang, adding that CNOOC will support CSCLF's development as always, deepen cooperation and embrace the successful convention of the 20th CPC National Congress with concrete measures.

Founded in 2003, the CNOOC Education Fund has administered more than 63 million yuan to 37 universities and colleges nationwide in subsidizing around 16,000 students from low-income families. In the new round of cooperation, the CNOOC donated 18 million yuan to the CSCLF. While continuing their support to students, the two sides will also foster new areas of cooperation, such as medical assistance and training programmes targeting rural areas, and protection of minors.

Expressing gratitude toward the CSCLF and the CNOOC, beneficiaries of the CNOOC Education Fund-Li Xiang, a student from the China University of Geosciences, Dao Jiji, a Tibetan student from the Southwest Minzu University, and Huang Jingcong, who has graduated from Xi'an Jiaotong University-vowed that they would work hard and grow their capabilities to help others.

Zhang Mengmeng, a teacher from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, said that the fund not only financially support students but also created platforms for exchanges and practices, inspiring them to fight for their future and contribute to society.

Zhang Xiaohong, executive member of the CSCLF Council, and Song Li, member of the CSCLF Council, also attended the event.
