Teaching a man to fish

“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. But teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” It’s a proverb that South Sudanese Koan Gatwech Nyuon, says best describes what brought him to China and the Institute of South-South Cooperation and Development. Studying for a PhD in China, he says, isn't just an opportunity for him to learn in a new country; it's also a means of building up practical knowledge to take home with him. South Sudan, he explains, is going through a similar development process to China. While China's economy has gone from strength to strength in recent years, it is still classed as a developing country. For this reason, it offers examples and hope to other developing countries, Nyuon tells CGTN. Which lessons has he learned, and how does he plan to use his new found-knowledge back home? Find out in his episode, taken from Rediscovering China's series "My Second Home".
