Upon the arrival of the Spring Festival, we would like to extend our New Year greetings to all the Chinese teachers and volunteers working far away from their motherland and families across the world and students of Confucius Institutes in various countries.

2017 is the year of striving ahead and making innovation for Confucius Institutes. The quality and efficiency of Confucius Institutes have been improved, with steady expanding scale and constant improving teaching quality. As of now, 525 Confucius Institutes and 1,113 Confucius Classrooms have been established in 146 countries and regions around the world, with 46,000 full-time and part-time teachers from China and other countries, 1.7 million offline students and 621 thousand registered online learners. As a unique and important platform for the world to know about China, Confucius Institutes have played a unique and significant role in facilitating people-to-people exchanges between China and the world and enhancing the friendship among people around the world.

Efficiency comes from diligence while success depends on forethought. In 2018, we will remain true to our original aspiration and fulfill our mission, constantly promote innovation and development and run Confucius Institutes better with all parties home and abroad, with a view to making new contributions to promoting mutual learning among civilizations and building a community of shared future for mankind.

“Confucius Institutes belong not only to China, but also to the world”. Chinese and foreign directors, teachers and volunteers have made indelible contributions to the development of Confucius Institutes through hard work and selfless dedication. On the occasion of the Spring Festival, Liu Yandong, Vice Premier and Chair of the Council of the Confucius Institute Headquarters wrote an inscription to extend her New Year greetings to all the friends who care about, support and take part in the construction of Confucius Institutes. Wish you a happy new year and all the best for you and your family!
