Towards a New Decade of Confucius Institutes

“Let the cloud sea wash the sky, to make Fujian’s landscape new and high”. These lines were written by Chinese President Xi Jinping when he was working in Fujian Province. Today, it gives me special pleasure to meet you all, my old and new friends, in the city of Xiamen, which has beautiful scenery and nice weather, to draw new blueprints together for future development at the 9th Confucius Institute Conference.
