Opening Ceremony

Prof. Liu Jiuqing, Deputy Secretary of the CPC of NENU, delivered the opening speech for the festival. He said that the NENU Cultural Festival created a platform on which many countries could have a meaningful cultural exchange and learn from each other. Through it, students of NENU, both Chinese and international, could experience the beauty of the world that comes from diversity, advocate for, and help preserve the excellent folk traditions of the world.

He mentioned that this year marks the tenth anniversary of the Belt and Road Initiative. Over the past ten years, China has worked side by side with other countries and achieved fruitful results in the fields of economy and trade, finance, science and technology, education, humanistic exchanges, ecology, and environmental protection. As a main objective of international cultural exchange, the various international study programs at NENU have been developing rapidly. The number of international students is increasing annually, the education system is becoming more complete, and the management is also improving by the day. The quality of student training programs has been widely acknowledged by both the Chinese and international societies. We are ready, willing, and able to accept more students who come from different cultural backgrounds to study at NENU. We are also happy to send our students to different places around the globe to experience more of the local customs and traditions and to strengthen our mutual understanding, to become outstanding talents with a global vision.
