On November 22, 2021, the fourth Macao Forum on Chinese Culture and the Inaugural Meeting of the Chinese Culture Promotion Ambassador Team were successfully held in the Cultural Building (E34) of the University of Macau. Considering that the pandemic situation is still continuing, in order to cooperate with the pandemic prevention work of the Macao SAR government, the meeting was held simultaneously in a combination of online (zoom) and offline.
Before the Flag Presentation Ceremony, Mr. PANG Chap Chong, Dean of Students, Student Affairs Office of the University of Macau, was invited to introduce the Chinese Culture Promotion Ambassador Team. At the same time, the meeting also had the honor to invite Mr. Ung Choi Kun, President of the Macao Wisdom Humanities Encourage Political Association, Mr. Wu Zhiliang, President of the Macao Foundation, Mr. Si Ka-lon, member of the Macao Legislative Assembly, Mr. Song Yonghua, Rector of the University of Macau, and Mr. Lei Pui Lam, First Vice Chair of the University Council of the University of Macau, to serve as advisers of the Chinese Culture Promotion Ambassador. Subsequently, Professor Zhu Shoutong of the CCHC of the University of Macau issued certificates to the three advisers and nine supervisors present on that day.
Once the Chinese Culture Promotion Ambassador activity was launched, it received enthusiastic applications from all parties. After all levels of selection, more than 120 students and public have become the first Chinese Culture Promotion Ambassadors. These ambassadors formed ten teams, namely: 篤行 (to behave sincerely), 慎始 (to be careful about the beginning), 弘毅 (to have a broad and strong mind), 行健 (to walk vigorously), 克勉 (to work hard), 效哲 (to learn from the sages), 謙益 (to be modest), 成思 (to think deeply and deliberately), 致遠 (to be committed to lofty ideals), 修遠 (to move forward determinedly). And the representatives of the ten teams came to the stage on the day of the meeting and received the flags from the distinguished guests. After the Flag Presentation Ceremony, Mr. CHEANG Neng Ian, Deputy Director of the CCHC of the University of Macau, introduced the work responsibilities and follow-up activities to the ambassadors in detail, and gave them high expectations. Finally, the Inaugural Meeting of the Chinese Culture Promotion Ambassador Team and the Flag Presentation Ceremony were a complete success in a harmonious and happy atmosphere.
