The construction of Luban Workshop, a Chinese vocational workshop program training talents overseas, has been accelerating in some Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) countries.

The vocational workshop is named after Lu Ban, an ancient Chinese woodcraft master.

It aims to promote vocational education exchanges and cooperation between China and other countries and regions.

So far, 20 such workshops have been built in 19 countries.

On March 24, a college from China's Tianjin signed an online cooperation agreement with Tajik Technical University, to set up a Luban Workshop in Tajikistan.

The construction of Luban Workshop in Uzbekistan is underway.

On July 29, Tianjin Maritime College signed an online cooperation agreement with Tashkent State Transport University, which will train technical talents in modern logistics management and information technology.

Since the first Luban Workshop was built in Thailand in 2016, more than 3,200 students have taken vocational education in Luban workshops worldwide.
