Belarus-China cooperation in education, culture viewed as important

MINSK, 3 January (BelTA) – The experience of cooperation with Belarus in education and culture is important for China. Charge d'Affaires of China to Belarus Luo Zhanhui made the statement during the event held on 30 December in anticipation of the year 2017 when the 25th anniversary of Belarusian-Chinese diplomatic relations will be marked, BelTA has learned.

Luo Zhanhui said he believes that getting to know each other’s traditions makes mutual understanding stronger this is why the organization of concerts and soirees to popularize Chinese culture in Belarus and Belarusian culture in China is important.

Chinese students arranged a concert in the Minsk State Linguistic University in anticipation of the New Year celebration. The concert was organized by the Education Department of the Embassy of China in Belarus and the Union of Chinese Students in Belarus. The concert featured both modern and traditional Chinese culture.

The concert began with a dance of the Dragon and a dance of the Lion. The show featured choir singing and solo singing, a medley of pop songs and folk songs, plays, and Chinese national dances. The young Chinese artists demonstrated outstanding skills. In some of the numbers dancing, acrobatics, wushu, and dagger fighting were closely intertwined. The spectators were truly delighted with the performance.

Many of the artists, who performed on the stage that evening, intend to pursue professional careers in choreography and singing. For some the performance was just a hobby. In either case Chinese students in Belarus remember their national traditions and get familiar with Belarusian art at the same time.
