Yellow River Commission Students Start Studies

Monday, 30 March, 2009

Picture 005_crop_webThe latest group of 19 future leaders from China’s Yellow River Conservancy Commission (YRCC) have started their Graduate Certificate studies in water management after completing their initial round of English language tuition.

The 15 men and four women, the third group from the YRCC to study in South Australia, will spend the next six months completing the Graduate Certificate programme, industry placements, and taking part in study tours and water management forums.

And already they’re looking for practical ways to incorporate the latest water resources expertise into the management of the Yellow River.

To mark the start of the specialist water management section of their course, the group attended a reception at ICE WaRM’s offices in early March – and revealed how comfortably they’re settled into their new surroundings.

Among the group, many have adopted new westernised names – including King, Forrest and Superman!

The Yellow River is China’s second largest river and plays an important role in the nation’s economic development – it serves 12 million hectares of agricultural land and delivers crucial hydro-electric power.
