PGMA to inaugurate Confucius Institute in Angeles

Manila (15 January) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will lead the inauguration today, January 15, 2010 of the Confucius Institute at Angeles University Foundation in Angeles City.

The President will ceremonially cut the ribbon and unveil the CI-AUF marker and the bust of Cinese philosopher Confucius.

The establishment of the CI-AUF, in cooperation with Fujian Normal University, will allow AUF to promote Chinese language and culture and strengthen its institutional capacity to engage in inter-cultural activities with contemporary China.

Supported by the Chinese Language Council International, the Institute will promote and develop the teaching of Chinese language and culture; strengthen bilateral relations and spearhead joint projects with local Chinese communities and partner institutions in China and emerge as the nerve center of Chinese resources and information.

The institute will also showcase contemporary Chinese popular art and media as well as deepen diplomatic relations between the Philippines and China.

Confucius Institutes, as non-profit education organizations, devote themselves to satisfying the demands of people from different countries and regions in the world who learn the Chinese language and culture.

As of October last year, a total of 523 Confucius Institutes and Confucius Classrooms have been established in 87 countries all over the world. (PIA) [top]
