Abed was not just a world class civil engineer; he dedicated half a century until his death in December 2019 as servant leader: purpose that of united villagers and civil societies in ENDING POVERTY. Fortunately for the worlds poroest new nation Bangaldesh 1971- Abed had networks like no other community leader Better yet what copperations he formed were needed by at least a billion village mothers in tropical asia where a third of infants were dying of diarrhea before Abed's person to person networking became the best news ever chatted. He was Royal Dutch Shell Oil Comany's regional CEO. So he could search what UK and Dutch Royal Societies (soon Japan Royals too) knew how to help end the poverty their colonial era had reapped the majority of all humans in. Primarily these 3 nations embedded trading barriers for centuries. So by 1970s these nations royal societies (ge londons arts green-geographical, medicinie, science, architects ...) were happy that a grounded movement could link them into what they didnt know. Abed chnaged sid through these relationships and by designing busienss microfrachises not charity wherever poossible for vilage women to own. To study with abed alumni is to join in the world's most cooperative empowering women movements for good of notably childrens development.

Chinese Government[edit]

In 1985, he was posted to the Chinese Embassy in Ottawa, Canada, where he served until 1989 as First Secretary, responsible for promoting academic cooperation between Canadian and Chinese universities.

From 1992 to 1993, he was Deputy Director-General in the Bureau of Science and Technology of the Shanxi Provincial Government in Xi’an. He also served at the Chinese Ministry of Education's Department of Vocational and Technical Education in Beijing, first as Director of the Division on Policy, Planning and Cooperation (1989-1991) and later as the Assistant Director-General of the Department (1991-1992). He was instrumental in formulating and implementing China's national policy on the development of technical vocational education.[2]


Qian Tang started his career at UNESCO in 1993 as Senior Programme Specialist and later Chief for Technical and Vocational Education, where he contributed to the creation of the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre in BonnGermany and also led preparations on the Second International Congress on Technical and Vocational Education in SeoulRepublic of Korea, serving as its Secretary-General.[3] He then occupied a number of senior positions in the Education Sector.

He steered efforts on the global Education for All initiative, which ran from 2000 to 2015, focusing on the provision of quality basic education for children, youth and adults.[4][5]

Since 2010, Qian Tang is Assistant Director-General for Education at UNESCO. He heads UNESCO's Education Sector, which includes around 400 staff at the headquarters, field offices and the seven education Institutes.

Under his leadership, the Education Sector spearheaded the formulation of the Education 2030 agenda, encapsulated in Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4), which calls for ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all. [6] [7] UNESCO is coordinating and monitoring its implementation at the global and regional levels, as entrusted by the Incheon Declaration adopted at the World Education Forum in 2015.[8]

In the course of his term, Qian Tang had assumed parallel duties.

From November 2016 to March 2017, he was Director ad interim of the Human Resources Management bureau, driving forward the revisions of human resources policies to improve the Organization's management.
