On September 20th, the inspection group of the Chinese Ministry of Education visited the UCD Confucius Institute for Ireland and met with representatives from the Institute. The director of the UCD Confucius Institute for Ireland, Dr. Liming Wang welcomed the guests.
The inspection group first listened to Director Liming Wang’s report, in which he briefly introduced the institute’s development since it was founded in 2006, and answered relevant questions. With no prior foundation in systematic and syllabus based Chinese language and culture promotion in Ireland, the Institute’s brilliant capacity and remarkable achievements were highly lauded by the inspection group, who also asked about the Institute’s opinions and suggestions in relation to the work of the education section of the Chinese Embassy.
The UCD Confucius Institute is the third stop on the inspection group’s European tour. Members of the group are Personnel Chief Shi Peng and Xiaojie Zhu, International Chief Xiaochun Yang and Financial Chief Weizhong Wang from the Department of Education. The inspection group has already carried out inspections in the Netherlands and Portugal. The Second Secretary Prof Xiaochuang Wu from the Education Section of the Chinese Embassy in Ireland also accompanied the guests.
