Description

On June 17, 2008, Hanban and the University of Lomé (UL) signed an agreement to establish a Confucius Center at the University of Lomé (Chinese: 多哥洛美大学孔子学院). The agreement was signed by the Chinese Ambassador to Togo, Yang Min, and the UL president, Koffi Ahadzi-Nonou. The Confucius Institute was co-founded by Lomé University (UL) in Togo and Sichuan International Studies University in China (SISU) in China (see: ''多哥洛美大学孔子学院庆祝成立6周年''). On April 30, 2009, the Chinese director and the first batch of teachers arrived. Classes officially began on July 20, 2009. The Confucius Institute was formally unveiled in a ceremony held on October 30, 2009, which included the signing of an implementation agreement by the UL and SISU. The 252 square meter Confucius Institute featured three offices, a multi-media library with 25 booths, a multi-use classroom for 43 students, and a reading library with 4,000 books and other materials (see 'Confucius Institute at University of Lome'). The Chinese Government later provided a RMB 16 million grant for a new teaching building for the institute, as captured by linked project ID#73652.
