Mr. Awasthi, Joint Secretary of Ministry of Education of Nepal, principals, volunteer Chinese teachers and more than 100 guests took part in the program.

In his speech, Ambassador Yang said, teenagers are hope of a country. He hoped the Nepalese teenagers can inherit the friendship between China and Nepal. He felt very pleasant to find that more and more Nepalese students were eager to learn Chinese. The donation would help Nepalese students in their learning of Chinese and China, and make them envoys to promote friendship of the two sides. The students' enthusiasm about Chinese learning gave him confidence in the future relations between China and Nepal.

Mr. Awasthi said, the government of China had provided long-term support to the education cause of Nepal. Some schools had opened Confucius colleges and Confucius classes with the help of more than 50 volunteer Chinese teachers. The Chinese government had also offered more than 100 scholarships to Nepalese students every year. He was very appreciated for the donation of Chinese books by Hanban.
