Dr. Zhang Yan, QS' director for China operations notes that in regards to higher education, China takes the lead in academic research, innovation and talent cultivation. Further he believes the government should put more efforts to encourage investments in the area and carry on reforms in education to attract more young talents to come to the country to study and work.
