On March 21, 2023, the Centre for Chinese History and Culture of the University of Macao successfully hosted “The Inauguration Ceremony of the Second Chinese Culture Promotion Ambassador Team”. The guests present at the ceremony were Prof. Zhu Shoutong, Director of the Center for Chinese History and Culture, Dr. Cheang Neng Lan, Deputy Director of the Center for Chinese History and Culture, Prof. Sio Chio Leong, Director of Academic Research Division, Prof. Yeung Siu Kwai, Director of Editorial and Publication Division, and Ms. Kuan Siu Yin, Principal Administrative Officer.
During this ceremony, Prof. Zhu Shutong, Director of the Center, stated that the Chinese Culture Promotion Ambassadors are based in Macao, including Macao’s universities, middle schools and primary schools, and are open to the Macao society. The purpose of setting up the Chinese Culture Promotion Ambassador Team is to cultivate and deepen young people’s love for China and Macao, as well as to deepen their understanding of China and Macao’s history and culture, so that they can truly appreciate the characteristics and heritage of Chinese culture and Macao’s local culture. The reason for calling them ambassadors has a special meaning. Although the term “messenger” can also be used, the role of “messenger” is only responsible for conveying the consciousness of the main body; whereas “ambassadors” can not only convey the consciousness, but also incorporate their own initiative, so that they can further their studies and experience, and can promote Chinese culture and Macao’s local culture independently and proactively.

Internal activities include Chinese culture study courses, lectures, etc., aiming at improving the ambassadors’ knowledge of Chinese culture, which is more conducive to the dissemination and export of Chinese culture. The external activities involve exchanges between schools and study tours to the Mainland.
