Nepali Ambassador to China Mahesh Kumar Maskey inaugurated the Nepal Study Center at Hebei University of Economics and Business (HUEB) in Hebei, China on Wednesday.

The center is the first academic institution specialising in Nepal study in China that will introduce Nepal’s culture, education, politics and economics to Chinese students, and promote China-Nepal ties, the HUEB said in a statement.

The center is based on the foundation laid by the collaborative work of HUEB and Kathmandu University. It is mostly composed by teachers of HUEB who once worked at Confucius Institute at Kathmandu University (CIKU).

“These teachers cherish China-Nepal friendship in their hearts, and concentrate on their studies and silently devote themselves to enabling Chinese people to understand the Nepal people better, furthering the development of China-Nepal relationship, making contribution to the construction of the comprehensive and cooperative generation-to- generation partnership between China and Nepal,” read the statement.

The first overseas Confucius established in 2007, CIKU has been teaching Chinese language and culture to Nepali students. With the establishment of the Nepal Study Center, the Hebei University expects to teach the Chinese students the Nepali language and culture.
