    The Confucuis Institute will launch one of its most important exhibitions and research programmes on Harold Wilfred Youren, a peace advocate dedicated to opening dialogue between China and the West in the 1950's. He amassed a significant collection of art works which were gifted to him during his travels and which he used to illustrate his public talks on Chinese art and history. Three examples of his collection will be featured at EthnicA Christchurch.

    A new booklet, China 101 An introduction to travelling and working in China, was launched at a ceremony organised by the University of Auckland’s Confucius Institute during Chinese State Councillor Liu Yandong’s recent visit to New Zealand.

    State Councillor Liu’s visit took place ahead of the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations between New Zealand and China on 22 December. Her visit highlighted the strong links New Zealand and China have in science, technology and education, and the intention to boost co-operation between our two countries in these areas.
