A senior lecturer at the Confucius Institute of the University of Cape Coast, Mr Li Lian, has called for a collaborative effort between China and other African countries to help build a bridge between cultures and civilization.

That, he said, includes respect for each other’s culture and civilization, upholding the beauty and diversity of civilization and drawing on each other’s strength.

Mr Lian made the call at the 15th United Nations Chinese Language Day celebration held on April 18, 2024.

The aim of the celebration, which was attended by over 400 individuals, was to build a bridge for mutual learning between different civilizations through the empowerment of the girl-child.

He explained that China had contributed immensely to the growth of civilization, as it was a cradle of human civilization, adding that “our forefathers have long engaged in inter-civilizational exchanges and mutual learning

According to him, culture and civilization played a vital role in addressing most of the common challenges faced by countries across the world globally.

He further indicated that there was a need for China and Africa to ride on current trends to transform the lives of the citizenry as both China and Africa were closely connected and shared a bond of affinity.

“In the time to come, let’s open arms wide to embrace the world and contribute to the dynamic achievements of us to a better world in the future,” he added.

For his part, the Chinese director of the Confucius Institute-UCC, Professor Ou Yamei, encouraged the students present at the event to study the Chinese language and also learn the Chinese culture.

The Governor of the Central Region commended the Institute for its effort in impacting the lives of students through Chinese teachings and cultures.

Mr Tang Hong, President of the Ghana Chinese Federation, in his remarks, encouraged students to learn the Chinese language and contribute significantly to economic and cultural development.

The Chinses Embassy and the Ghana Overseas Chinese Federation also donated Chinese books to local schools in the region.
