English language education in China is of greater strategic importance as the country moves closer to center stage in the global arena, and Chinese English language educators should strive to nurture more talent with global competence, experts said on Friday at an international conference.

As the country enters the 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-25) period next year, language educators should continue to promote opening-up in the education sector and strengthen international cooperation and communication, experts said at the 2020 Global English Education China Assembly, which adopted the theme "Cooperation and Learning for a Shared Future".

The three-day assembly that opened on Friday, held online and offline in Hangzhou and Beijing, is jointly hosted by China Daily and the United States-based TESOL International Association. TESOL stands for Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages.
