On November 8, 2011, The Addis Ababa Confucius Institute (AACI) signed agreement with the Addis Ababa and Hawassa Universities to establish Chinese Language Learning Centers in three universities in Ethiopia. The signing ceremony has taken place on the premises of the AACI in the presence of members of the visiting Chinese High Level Delegation to Ethiopia from Tianjin Municipal Government, which is led by Xing Yuanmin, the chairperson of Tianjin Municipal Committee of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), and also officials from the Ethiopian side. The status of the project is uncertain.
It appears no funding was exchanged between the universities, the Institute, or the government in this partnership.
