Confucius Institute (孔子学院)
During the state visit to Jamaica of Chin ese Vice-President, Mr Xi Jinping, in February 2009, the Confucius Institute was officially handed over to the UWI.
We are housed on campus at 6 Gibraltar Road, adjacent to the Founder’s Park.
Our primary objective is to promote the learning of Chinese Language (Mandarin) and Culture among Jamaicans. We are aimed at becoming a full professional and development centre, as well as a resource library for those wishing to learn about China – arts, economics, education, science, technology, etc. We will house a comprehensive library, comprising books, films (movies and documentaries), as well as provide service to the business and civil communities.
The Confucius Institute was officially opened on July 19, 2010.
