(LINA) –The Chinese Ambassador to Liberia, Zhang Yue, has said cultural exchange and mutual learning are a significant part of China-Liberia cooperation.
He said cultural exchanges and business ties are the two closely-related and mutually reinforcing wheels that move China-Liberia ties forward.
The Chinese Ambassador made the statement Tuesday at the Monrovia City Hall at the start of a cultural performance by the visiting Chinese Artistic Troupe.
The Chinese artistic troupe’s performances will include folk music, folk songs and martial arts, among others.
“In the past years, with the support of the Confucius Institute and other related institutions, we have done a lot in cultural exchange with Liberia,” he pointed out.
According to Ambassador Zhang, the Chinese government provided Liberians opportunities to study in China through the Chinese Scholarship and Training Program, stressing “these students from China are learning and seeing more of Liberia and Africa.”
