20:46, December 05, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- The city of Los Angeles will establish partnerships with charitable foundations to promote educational exchanges between China and the U.S., announced the mayor of Los Angeles at a press conference Monday.

Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa said the program, the "100K Strong Initiative," will help more students from Los Angeles-area high schools in underserved communities study in China.

"Our two great nations have the opportunity now to work together to build a brighter future, and the understanding and friendship between us will be crucial to making that dream a reality," he said.

The city will cooperate with Americans Promoting Study Abroad (APSA) and the Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation, Beijing, to provide study opportunities in China for the students.
