2017/12/27

On November 27 2017, the Confucius Institute at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand, held a grand farewell party for 58 Mandarin Language Assistants who were soon to return to China. Charge d'affaires Qu Guangzhou was invited to attend and speak at the event. Mr Qu thanked the assistants for their hard work over this past year, noting that they have not only taught the Chinese language and promoted Chinese culture, but have also forged deep friendships with the local people, enhancing friendship and bilateral ties between the two peoples. At present, China - New Zealand relations are progressing well with close economic and trade relations and frequent cultural exchanges. These are built on the basis of a mutual political trust. After the Labour Government took office this year, the leaders of China and New Zealand reiterated their desire to continue to advance the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries. This will involve enhancing cooperation in a variety of fields, including cultural exchanges.
