About the Confucius Institute

Confucius Institutes are intended to promote global knowledge of Chinese culture and language. This way is also seeking to strengthen relations between China and the rest of the world, promoting cultural diversity.





China established the first Confucius Institute in late 2004 based on the principles of mutual respect, friendly negotiation and equal benefits. The Confucius Institute should develop and facilitate the teaching of Mandarin Chinese language and promote cultural and academic exchanges between China and other parts of the world.
