On March 21, Ambassador Mr. Du Xiaohui held talks with the recipients of the 2022-2023 “Chinese Ambassador Scholarship” led by the Acting Vice Chancellor of the University of Zambia, Professor Bomiface Namangala.

Ambassador Du extended a warm welcome to the teachers and students for their visit to the Embassy and asked everyone to speak freely. The 15 recipients of the scholarship spoke one by one, sincerely thanking the Chinese Embassy in Zambia for its strong support for their studies, and wished to have the opportunity of further study in China in the future. One student said that his family was in financial difficulties, and as the hope of the whole village, it was with the support of the “Chinese Ambassador Scholarship” that he was able to maintain studies so as to change his destiny. One said that she was working hard to learn Chinese language and culture, and had passed the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK). Learning Chinese had doubled her world and brought more opportunities. Some said that the Chinese culture is extensive and profound, the Chinese people are industrious and friendly, and China’s achievements in scientific, technological and economic development are admirable. By learning from China, they could better serve the development of Zambia.

After carefully listening to the students’ opinions, Ambassador Du replied accordingly, saying that the traditional friendship between China and Zambia is profound and full of vitality in the new era. China is advancing national rejuvenation on all fronts through a Chinese path to modernization. The ongoing innovation and green development have not only improved the living standards of the Chinese people, but also brought broad opportunities to the developing countries including Zambia. All the young talents present here today represent the future of Zambia. He hoped them to study hard, become “China-Zambia Friendship Ambassadors” and write a new chapter of China-Zambia friendship together with the Chinese people.
