2018/03/25

On 24 March 2018, Mr. Ma Zhanwu, Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in Kolkata, visited Cheena Bhavana of Visva Bharati University, India, and spoke to the teachers and students there on current China-India relationship.

Consul General Ma said that the exchanges and cooperation between China and India are seeing continued growth, with frequent interactions between the leaders of the two countries. In particular, on 20 March 2018, President Xi Jinping had a very good conversation with Prime Minister Modi on the phone, and both sides pledged to further strengthen the bilateral ties and advance their exchanges and cooperation. This has added new impetus for the development of the bilateral relationship, and China-India exchanges and cooperation are entering a new period of robust growth.

He said that with the above development, India’s demand for people with command of the Chinese language will further increase, which will provide the Cheena Bhavana students with more opportunities for employment and career development. On the other hand, it will also mean more requirements and challenges for them. He urged the students to pay more attention to China’s domestic development in their learning the language, including studying President Xi Jinping’s relevant speeches, and enhance their understanding of both China and the progress of the bilateral relationship. He also reminded them to become good at the English language so as to do well in the tranlation from Chinese into English or the other way round.

He also expressed his appreciation at the achievement of the department made over the years with joint efforts of the teachers and students, and said the Chinese Consulate General in Kolkata would continue to work with Cheena Bhavana. In conclusion, he wished Cheena Bhavana more progress and all the best.

Dr. Avijit Banerjee, head of Cheena Bhavana, welcomed Consul General Ma’s visit on behalf of the teachers and students, and thanked the Chinese embassy and the Consulate for their support. He also said Cheena Bhavana would continue to do its utmost in the Chinese language teaching and the relavant bilateral exchanges, and make new contribution to growth of China-India ties.

Consul Shao Yujin and Vice Consul Xie Chao attended the above event.
