MEETING BY THE MANAGEMENT OF CAPE COAST TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY WITH THE DELEGATION FROM THE CONFUCIUS INSTITUTE, UNIVERSITY OF CAPE COAST   HELD ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2020 AT THE COUNCIL CHAMBER

A delegation from the Confucius Institute, University of Cape Coast (UCC), led by Prof. Ishmael Mensah paid a courtesy call on the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. J. D. Owusu-Sekyere on Monday, December 14, 2020. The spokesperson of the delegation, Prof. Ishmael Mensah who is also the Ghanaian Director of the Confucius Institute, UCC, indicated that the visit was to deepen the relationship between Cape Coast Technical University (CCTU) and the Confucius Institute and also to formally introduce Ms. Zhou Guiping who had been recently appointed as the Director, Confucius Institute, University of Cape Coast (UCC). It was noted that Ms. Zhou Guiping played a huge role in the establishment of the Confucius Institute, University of Cape Coast (UCC) so her appointment came as no surprise.

Ms. Zhou Guiping on the other hand thanked the Management of CCTU for their continued support for the institute especially organising students in the learning of the Chinese language. She intimated that the institute looks forward to collaborating with the University in other areas like; joint programmes in Engineering, Students’/faculty exchange programmes. She also stated that there were lots of scholarship opportunities for interested students who could undergo training to become local Chinese teachers to teach the Chinese language after graduating.

The Vice-Chancellor pledged CCTU’s continued support towards the Confucius Institute and requested for a well-established classroom to enhance the teaching and learning of the Chinese language. He also appreciated the cordial relationship with the Confucius Institute and urged for more fruitful collaboration. Responding to that, Prof. Ishmael Mensah indicated that CCTU is on the brighter spot of the Institute hence it has been earmarked as one of the Confucius classrooms and hopefully next year that would be looked at. 

Present at the meeting were Dr. Francis Narh Akrono - Registrar, Mr. Kwabena Owusu Director of Finance and Mr. Sylvanus Ametordzi - Coordinator, Confucius Institute CCTU. Ms. Li Yinbo, Chinese Teacher, Confucius Institute, UCC and Mr. Charles Delali Adegah , local Chinese Teacher, Confucius Institute, UCC were also part of the delegation.
