KUALA LUMPUR - China's major telecom equipment maker ZTE said Tuesday that it would set up a training center at one of Malaysia's top universities as part of its efforts for a "digital silk road."

The agreement between ZTE and Malaysia's Multimedia University will see the establishment of a training center to provide training for customers and employees of ZTE, and also to provide internship opportunities for students of the university.

The students will enjoy the priority access to the world-class information and communication technology without leaving campus. In addition, the training center will also be open to Malaysian public with the public training course for local ICT engineers.

Steven Ge, chief executive of ZTE Malaysia, said the agreement marked an important milestone for ZTE as it will be a major step forward, benefiting both parties as participants of the "digital silk road," in synergy with China-proposed Belt and Road initiative.

Ge said ZTE will provide its telecommunication equipment and technology in a bid to contribute to the cultivation of local talents.

As part of the agreement, ZTE University, a corporate training center founded by the company, will also send a large number of technical instructors and consultants to support education cooperation in training, study, consulting, certification and training center operations in the follow-up educational cooperation.
