In his remarks, Ambassador Zhang pointed out that China is a big family of 56 ethnic groups and Xinjiang is a typical example of harmonious inhabitation of multiple ethnic groups and integration of different cultures. The friendship between China and Guyana has a long history. Since the establishment of diplomatic ties, two countries have witnessed ever-growing political, economic and trade and cultural relations. Exchanges and mutual learning will boost the development and prosperity of the Chinese and Guyanese cultures and contribute to the deepening of mutual understanding and friendship between two peoples. He believed that the cultural and people-to-people exchanges would achieve greater progress.

 

Minister Anthony said that China-Guyana relations, cultural exchanges in particular, have kept growing over the past years. The Confucius Institute at the University of Guyana aroused interest of more Guyanese people in the Chinese language.
