Two new master's courses for Chinese officials were officially opened in the Graduate School of Public Administration under the Singapore Nanyang Technological University on March 9.

Dai Bing, an official at the Chinese Embassy in Singapore, said that Singapore has played a special and leading role during China's reform and opening-up process. China, now in a critical period of social transformation, has a lot to learn from Singapore's experiences in many fields such as housing, health care, education and administration.

Xu Guanlin, president of the Singapore Nanyang Technological University, said the University began offering short-term training programs for Chinese officials in the early 1990s and now offers six Chinese-speaking masters courses and various short-term programs for Chinese officials. The university has established close links with China.

The two master's courses in managerial economics and public administration, known as the "mayor classes," have trained more than 1,000 students so far. In addition, more than 10,000 Chinese officials have already received training, including various short-term programs at the Nanyang Technological University.
