The Chinese Embassy hosted a farewell reception for 22 students who have been awarded scholarships to study in China.
Chinese Ambassador Wang Xuefeng congratulated the students, reminding them that the opportunity to study in China is critical to Samoa’s development aspirations.
“You have won the scholarship with your hard work and your academic excellence,” Mr. Xuefang said.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Samoa for the strong support and assistance in the implementation of the Chinese Scholarships programme over the years.
“This year, just as every year in the past, the best candidates for the scholarships have been selected.”
