Chinese institute of language & arts and China centre was inaugurated by mission director, RMSA Thejao Vihenuo, government of Nagaland on Saturday at Vikiye centre, Notun bosti junction, Dimapur.
Thejao in his speech said a series of developmental activities are taking place in Nagaland and articulated that the opening of a Chinese Institute of Language & Arts and China centre was pertinent.
He said when it comes to China and its languages; the first thing that strikes a person’s mind is the wealth the country possesses.
On a similar note, Thejao said Nagaland would prosper only if there was surplus produce from the hills, as well as full utilization of the rich mineral resources.
He believed there was a need to impart knowledge to the youth, make them resourceful and encourage them to venture out of the country.
He said the institute would not only impart knowledge in Chinese language but also its art and culture.
“We have so many things to learn from the Chinese and other societies, and our affinity with the Chinese would also provoke interest among children to learn more about China”, Thejao said.
He also lauded Dr. Yan Murry and his wife Jenny Haining Murry director, Chinese Institute of Languages & Arts and China centre for their venture, adding their decision to set up the institute was relevant in the present context.
Jenny Haining Murry while giving a brief introduction of the institute said the purpose of opening the centre was to promote education of Chinese language and also its culture.
The library at the centre would focus on learning more about the Asian super power’s China history, policies and economy.
“Language is a vehicle for friendship”, she said, adding when the whole world was now focusing on learning Chinese language and culture, this couldn’t be more appropriate given the fact that Nagaland is a close neighbor of China.
She further disclosed that learning Chinese language would open avenues for Naga entrepreneurs, businessmen and students in search of jobs.
While affirming the institute would meet the educational demands, she also divulged that the institute would do its best in fostering friendship between the two countries.
It may be mentioned that Chinese is one of the most widely spoken language in the world after English.
Admission to the institute is in progress while classes for the first batch would kick start from May 18.
