The Confucius Institute at the University of Ghana Saturday marked the Global Confucius Institute Day with a colorful ceremony in Accra.

At the ceremony, which was held at one of the biggest shopping malls in the capital, students from the institute's teaching sites displayed their achievements and expressed their love for the Chinese language and culture through excellent performances.

The students thrilled the audience with lively performances such as varying musical performances, dances, Chinese language lessons while some visitors also enjoyed Chinese tea art, martial arts as well as painting of facial masks of Peking opera.

Chinese Ambassador to Ghana Sun Baohong firmly believes that as long as people from the two countries join hand-in-hand, the torch of China-Ghana education and cultural exchanges would be passed on, and shine out dazzling in the new generation.

She urged the students to study hard and support the cause of China-Ghana friendly relations.

"I wish you become ambassadors of China-Ghana friendship in the new generation," Sun said.

Director of the Institute Mei Meilian said her outfit would continue to work hard to carry out its responsibilities by making Chinese classes and Chinese cultural programs available to more Ghanaians, helping them to attain more scholarships and organize more of them to visit China.

Established four years ago, the Confucius Institute has made gratifying achievements in carrying out Chinese teaching and spreading Chinese culture with the joint efforts of both sides.

Currently, there are more than 2,000 students with several teaching points, a variety of courses and several kinds of cultural activities which are widely welcomed by Ghanaians. Enditem
