Fijiís Ambassador to China H. E. Mr. Ioane Naivalurua visited the Confucius Institute (CI) at The University of the South Pacific (USP).

当地2月9日,斐济驻中国大使约安尼∑纳伊瓦卢鲁阿(Ioane Naivalurua)访问南太平洋大学孔子学院,亲切会见了阿卡妮西∑克德拉耶提(Akanisi Kedrayate)博士、孔子学院外方院长余倩莊、中方院长杨慧及孔院教职工。

克德拉耶提博士感谢大使对孔院工作长期以来的支持。她表示,上次大使到访孔院时提到的关于孔院奖学金生培训的问题,她已经与斐济政府主管高等教育助学计划的主席讨论过,计划在今年具体实施。孔院校友录的建设也列入日程之中,计划今年4月开始进行。

克德拉耶提博士介绍了南太孔院在库克群岛、瓦努阿图及劳托卡开设孔子课堂的情况。在没有开设孔子课堂的校区,孔院将通过网上授课的形式让学生拥有学习中文的机会。她表示,今年社会班与学分班的报名人数都有所上升,这也体现出当地民众对汉语和中国文化浓厚的兴趣。

纳伊瓦卢鲁阿表示,希望在新的一年里,与孔院在学生事务方面的合作能够达到一个新的高度,也希望斐中两国能够达成更好的理解,并祝愿所有在孔院学习汉语的学生以及在中国留学的奖学金生都能够取得优异的成绩。同时,他希望能够加快建设孔院校友录,保持斐中两国的关系和交流的活力。

最后,杨慧向纳伊瓦卢鲁阿赠送了中国书法作品,表达了对大使的美好祝愿。

On Thursday the 9th February 2017, the Fijiís Ambassador to China H.E.

Dr. Kedrayate thanked the Ambassador for his long-standing support for the work of CI-USP.

The construction of the alumni is also included in the agenda, which is planned to start in April this year.
