    Russian and Chinese university rectors are set to attend a Russian-Chinese science and education cooperation forum on Tuesday, the Moscow State University (MSU) said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The event will be attended by over 400 guests, including representatives from China's Education Ministry and the Chinese embassy in Russia, as well as rectors from 90 Russian and 80 Chinese universities, the university said in a statement.

    Guest speakers include Russian Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets, China's Vice Premier Liu Yandong, Russian Education and Science Minister Dmitry Livanov and MSU Rector Viktor Sadovnichy, according to the MSU.

    Representatives from the two countries' universities are set to sign a range of cooperation agreements, the statement added.

    Russia and China have been increasing cooperation in higher education. A new Russian-Chinese joint educational institution, established on the basis of the MSU, will open in September in China's rapidly developing Shenzhen free economic zone and may accept up to 250 students during its first intake.
