On July 10th, the closing ceremony of the 10th “Shanghai Summer School - The Diplomats' Program” was successfully held. Jointly sponsored by the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission and Foreign Affairs Office of Shanghai Municipal Government, the program is organized by East China Normal University (ECNU). Diplomats representing countries from all over the world came attended the ceremony with Chen Yongliang, Deputy Director of the Consular Office of Shanghai Foreign Affairs Office and Huang Meixu, Director of ECNU Global Education Center.
This year’s program ended on a high note with the final event known as “Mandarin Show”. This show is a significant part of the Diplomats’ Program to promote the cultural exchanges and friendship among different peoples.
Moreover, this year’s program achieved higher levels of engagement through Chinese courses, diverse cultural activities, like Song Dynasty cultural immersion experience, lecture on Chinese medicine culture, lecture on China's foreign trade under the pandemic, etc.
The Diplomats' Program is one of the most influential boutique programs in the Shanghai Summer School programs. The Diplomat Program has been running for ten years now, and the Global Education Center has provided a top quality platform for language learning and cultural exchange for diplomats from consulates in Shanghai.
Let's look forward to an even more exciting decade of the Diplomats' Program. See you next year!
