With China about to become the biggest contributor to UNESCO, the organization is actively trying to hire more experts from the country, its human resources chief said.

Hong Kwon, director of the human resources management bureau of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, said in a recent interview that the group sets quotas on the number of employees from different countries, based on how much money a country contributes.

The quota for Chinese staff at UNESCO is between 23 and 39, but will likely be raised to between 38 and 63 next year as China becomes the biggest contributor, Kwon said during a visit to Beijing Foreign Studies University last week.
