    Confucius Institute opens in Uruguay to celebrate 30 years of diplomatic relations with Beijing

    Retired Chinese architect and teacher Cheung-Koon Yim, 81, who emigrated to Uruguay in 1953, was tapped to run the institute in Montevideo

    A Confucius Institute recently opened in Uruguay's capital Montevideo, fulfilling a dream for promoters of Chinese culture and locals keen to learn more about China. The institute, a worldwide network that offers a window to Chinese culture through Mandarin (standard Chinese) language classes and other types of courses, opened in April, thanks to an agreement between Uruguay's University of the Republic (Udelar) and Qingdao University in eastern China's Shandong Province.
