The Bangladesh-China Youth Student Association or simply BCYSA (Bengali: বাংলাদেশ চায়না ইয়ুথ স্টুডেন্ট অ্যাসোসিয়েশন) is a platform for Bangladeshi students and professionals in China with the aim of strengthening cooperation between the two countries, and promoting a deeper understanding.[2][3] This organization was established in 2016.[4]


From independence onwards, Bangladeshi students and professionals have been traveling to China. But a long time passed before an organization for Bangladeshi students and professionals was formed in 2016. Until then most of the students and professionals were involved in small groups through various social media platforms. Many had worked hard to bring all students and professionals living in China under one umbrella for their welfare and cooperation. Soon after coming to China to pursue his Ph.D., the founding President of BCYSA, Professor Dr. Md. Shahabul Haque[5] had felt the necessity for a voluntary organization for the Bangladeshi students and professionals residing in China. Fortunately, many students and professionals also expressed interest in his idea. Subsequently, while on a visit to China Radio International in Beijing, he met with Yu Guangyue Anandi, Head of Bangla Department of Chinese Media Group, and shared his interest to form an organization of Bangladeshi students and professionals, and she praised and encouraged the initiative. Afterwards, having held a meeting with a group of enthusiastic individuals in China, on November 25, 2016, a new organization was formed with 13 members under the leadership of Professor Dr. Md. Shahabul Haque. Like the Association of Bangladesh China Alumni (ABCA),[6] it is one of the most active and influential organizations of Bangladeshi students and professionals living in China.[4] Since then, every year BCYSA has been organizing its annual general meeting with the help of BCYSA's executive committee.

BCYSA launched its website in 2017 and operates all its activities through this online platform. BCYSA's online Bengali bi-annual "Mahaprachir" started its journey in June 2019.[7] BCYSA-online news portal started its journey in October 2019 and has been publishing up to now. The organization also has a research wing where professionals in various fields are trained by experts. Every year, BCYSA presents the "BCYSA Community Award" to Bangladeshi students and professionals living in China in recognition of their exemplary achievements and contributions in bridging the gap and building friendships between the two countries.

In addition, BCYSA assists Bangladeshi students in obtaining scholarships from Chinese universities, employment in Chinese institutions, and doing business in China. BCYSA also provides assistance to individuals seeking help in various universities and cities in China. In this regard, BCYSA's campus representatives play a vital role with regard to providing assistance for people in need. On the whole, BCYSA plays a phenomenal role to promote both country's philosophy, culture, and positive diplomatic relations between the two countries.[4]
