On the afternoon of March 17th, the Lleras hall at the University of Los Andes was packed. Officials from Bogota and local citizens enjoyed a spectacular performance from the Jilin University art troupe.

Nineteen teachers and students of the troupe put on various performances, including songs and dances, folk music, instrumental ensemble performances and choral singing. The excellent performance displayed the vitality and vigor of young people in modern China and won warm applause. After the show, the audience came to the stage to take photos with the performers.

Before the performance, Dr. Carlos Angulo Galvis, President of the University of Los Andes, met with Prof. Han Xiaofeng, Vice President of Jilin University. They held discussions on academic activities and exchange visits between the two schools and reached a mutually satisfactory agreement. Carl Langebaek, Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Claudia Montilla V., Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Alcira Saavedra Becerra, Director of the Department of Languages and Sociocultural Studies, Lu Desheng, Cultural Counselor from the Chinese Embassy in Colombia, cultural official Shen Lisuo and leaders of Jilin University also held talks. The two sides thought that the Confucius Institute at the University of Los Andes could serve as a platform for the two countries to develop cultural and academic exchanges.

On March 18th and 20th, the troupe headed for the New Granada Confucius Classroom and the Confucius Institute in Medellin and was heartily welcomed by the teachers and students as well as local communities.
