On January 22nd, 2008, Shang Liwei and Zhang Xiying, associate

First Secretary, Mr. Zhang Jun from Chinese Embassy, Chinese Manager,
Mr. Sun Yuwen, Minister and Secretary of Ministry of Information

etc attended the opening ceremony.
As an institute of promoting language and culture, CI at KU actively
participated and supported the activities of Chinese-funded companies.
The close relationship with Chinese-funded companies is not only
part of routine work, but is also contributable to the popularization
of Confucius Institute and establishing an authoritative position
of Confucius Institute in Kathmandu, and to the promotion of Chinese
Language and Culture.
Currently, teachers from Confucius Institute have already cooperated
actively with Chinese-funded companies. They recommended excellent
students as Chinese interpreters for these companies. The students
work as M.C or do other jobs. The Chinese-funded companies expressed
that they would support Confucius Institute in the activities
in promoting Chinese Language and Culture. This is a trial in
the cooperation with Chinese-funded Companies, and we will make
persistent efforts to do this.
