People's Republic of China

People’s Republic of China has assisted USP with the establishment of the Confucius Institute at its main Laucala Campus, which was officially opened in Suva on 6 September 2012. The Confucius Institute at USP was established between USP and the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT). Since the establishment of the Confucius Institute at Laucala Campus, three other Confucius Classrooms have been opened in the Cook Islands, Lautoka and Emalus Campuses. The Chinese Embassy in Vanuatu donated office equipment, including two sets of desktops and air conditions valued to assist in improving the learning environment of the Confucius Classroom at the USP Emalus Campus.

The People’s Republic of China provided USD 1,775,994 in 2017 for extension of the Confucius Institute at Laucala Campus.

It has also supported the project for the establishment of the Francophonie Building at the University’s Emalus Campus, which was completed in 2013.
