Time stops for no one, and the seasons keep changing. At this beautiful moment of bidding farewell to the old year and welcome the new, we would like to extend New Year greetings and sincere wishes to the Confucius Institute directors, Chinese language teachers, volunteers in various countries and the international Chinese language educators and students.

2019 marks the 15th anniversary of the Confucius Institute and the first International Chinese Language Education Conference was successfully held recently. Since the past 15 years, China has supported schools at all levels sending 115,000 Chinese teachers and volunteers to the countries all over the world, funded the training of 49,000 native Chinese language teachers and received 200,000 international teachers and students through the Chinese Bridge Summer Camp Program to exchange experience. We also have provided the HSK and certification services for over 8,000,000 Chinese language learners worldwide. The vigorous development of international Chinese language education has promoted people-to-people and cultural exchanges, mutual learning and the people-to-people bond between China and other countries. It has been warmly welcomed by people of all countries and won high praise from the international community.

In the spirit of mutual respect, friendly consultation, equality and mutual benefit, the Confucius Institute has provided strong support for countries around the world to conduct Chinese language education and has contributed significantly to enhancing people-to-people and cultural exchanges between China and other countries and promoting diverse and colorful world civilizations. All these achievements reflect the sincere dedication and hard work of tens of thousands of people in the Confucius Institutes around the world. Here, we would like to express our high respect and heartfelt thanks to all the friends who have supported and participated in the building of the Confucius Institute!

Standing at this new starting point of 2020, we should work hand in hand and strive with one mind to actively deepen the reform of the Confucius Institute, intensify the high-quality development of international Chinese language education, and make new greater contributions to promoting people-to-people and cultural exchanges between China and other countries, enhancing the friendship among people around the world, advancing culture diversity and building a community of shared future for mankind.

Wish everyone a happy holiday, good health, a successful career and a happy family!
