At this wonderful moment of ringing out the Old Year and ringing in the New Year, we would like to extent New Year greetings and sincere wishes to all the Chinese teachers and volunteers working aboard far from their motherland and families throughout the world as well as teachers and students of Confucius Institutes in various countries.

The year of 2017 has served as a link between the past and the future of the Confucius Institute and keeps carrying forward its cause and forging ahead into the future.

With its extended functions and improved systems, the Confucius Institute has made new contributions to serving the construction of the Belt and Road Initiative, enhancing the friendship among people around the world and facilitating mutual learning between China and the rest of the world.

“The Confucius Institute is not only a part of China, but also a part of the world”. It serves as a window and a bridge for lingual and cultural exchanges between China and the world. By working diligently and serving quietly, Chinese and foreign directors, teachers and volunteers have greatly contributed to the development of the Confucius Institute and communications between China and the rest of the world. Here, we would like to extent our heartfelt gratitude to all the friends who have supported and took part in the construction of Confucius Institutes.
