China and Egypt have seen increasing exchanges in education in recent years, a senior Chinese official said in Cairo on Monday.

High-level exchanges in education featuring closer cooperation have become regular, said Wang Gang, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, when visiting a friendship school funded by the Chinese government in the western outskirts of Cairo.

The model school is one of the cooperative projects between the two countries, which injects vigor to the development of bilateral relations, said Wang, who is also vice chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference National Committee, the country's top political advisory body.

Currently, there are some 360 Egyptian students studying in China and two Confucius schools in Egypt. China has provided technical support for Chinese language teaching to three Egyptian universities.

Wang, head of a CPC delegation, started a four-day visit to Egypt last Saturday. He has met with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Egyptian Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif and Egypt's ruling National Democratic Party Secretary General Safwat el-Sherif.
