Reinvigorating Academia in the V4

Central Europe Should Take a Lesson From Chinese Universities

16 July 2019

Through considerable public investment, the V4 can strengthen their academic standings and reshape the economic outlook of the region.

There is a fair amount of talk about the “China Model” of economic development in Central Europe.

In his 2014 speech on illiberal democracy, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán mentioned China as one of “the stars of international analyses”. “I have come to China to learn from you,” the President of the Czech Republic, Miloš Zeman, told CCTV in an interview on one of his numerous trips to the country.

Adapting strategies

Central Europeans may be loath to admit it, but they do have a lot to learn from China, and higher education is a perfect example.
