Joint Conference of Confucius Institutes in Europe Held in Bologna

University Of Bologna

 

The three day event was held in Bologna over the weekend starting on Friday the 8th of June. It was most definitely an event of cultural and educational importance as you could see just by looking around the room: The Italian Education Minister Maria Chiara Carrozza, the two time Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi (who is a laureate of the University of Bologna), Xu Lin the Director-General of Hanban, Ivano Dionigi the rector of the University of Bologna. The role the conference was to further establish the relationship between Italy and China. Italy was represented at the conference by a total of 10 Confucius Institutes and 9 Confucius Classrooms already established in the country. Carozza and Xu Lin further stressed the institutes role in establishing a permanent collaboration in the future and how cultural exchange is the root for a long friendship. Indeed the two countries have a lot to contribute to each other. 
 
The programme confirms its growing popularity: The predictions show that by 2015 in the 1,500 Confucius Institutes and Classrooms worldwide the number of qualified teachers is expected to reach 50,000, of which 30,000 locally sourced furthering cultural integration and helping the local economies. Numbers that seem too good to be true in the current economic climate showing that the importance of Chinese language and culture is not going unnoticed in Europe.
