SIBIU, Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu awarded an honorary doctorate (or “Doctor Honoris Causa” in Romanian) to Madam Xu Lin, Chief Executive of Confucius Institute Headquarters and Director General of Hanban, to commend her extraordinary contributions to promoting the development of culture, education and talent training for both China and Romania.

Madam Xu noted, “The honorary doctorate certainly brings honor to me, and along with it also come responsibility and hope. I believe that the Confucius Institute will serve not only as a platform to spread Chinese language and culture but also as a bridge connecting China’s economy and Romania’s in the future.”

On that morning, the Confucius Institute Headquarters, the Sibiu County Council and Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu jointly signed a Letter of Intent to list the Confucius Institute as one of Sibiu’s county-level regional development projects.

Up to now, Romania has had four Confucius Institutes respectively located in Bucharest, Brasov, Cluj-Napoca and Sibiu. The one in Sibiu was established in November, 2007 as the first of its kind.
