On October 7, 2021, Consul General Chen Peijie attended the online awards ceremony of the “Hello China” short video contest jointly organized by the Consulate General and the Confucius Institute at São Paulo State University. Luis Paulino, Dean of the Confucius Institute at Sao Paulo State University, is online.
Chen said that the Confucius Institute at São Paulo State University and the consulate-general cooperate closely and have played an active role in promoting cultural exchanges between China and Pakistan. This time the two sides overcame the impact of the epidemic and once again cooperated to host a video competition, which attracted the enthusiastic participation of young friends, demonstrating the power of communication, cooperation and friendship across time and space. The friendly stories told by the players attentively fully demonstrated the people-to-people exchanges between China and Brazil, the youth style, power and voice of the people in the people-to-people bond, as well as the eager expectations of Brazilian youths for deepening the friendship between China and Brazil. President Chen congratulated the winners, thanked all the contestants, and looked forward to more Brazilian friends participating in such exchange activities, becoming the inheritors of China-Pakistan friendship, participants in China-Pakistan cooperation, and promoters of China-Pakistan relations.
President Paulino said that China is an important partner of Brazil and thanked China for its massive assistance, including vaccines, for Pakistan’s fight against the epidemic. This event provided Brazilian youths with an opportunity to perceive China and showcase their style. It will help Brazilian young generations to strengthen their learning and understanding of Chinese and Chinese culture, and to accumulate youth power for the promotion of cultural exchanges between China and Brazil. The Confucius Institute at Sao Paulo State University is willing to continue to strengthen cooperation with the Consulate General, and make greater contributions to deepening the friendship between the two countries and promoting people-to-people bonds.
This competition received entries from all over Brazil, of which seven were awarded. A Brazilian girl from Mato Grosso State won the first prize.
