Description

On January 14, 2008 an agreement was signed between Xiamen University and Stellenbosch University for the establishment of a Confucius Institute at the University of Stellenbosch in Western Cape, South Africa.

However, the monetary value of this grant commitment is unknown. The partner university for this project was Xiamen University in Fujian Province.
