Confucius Institute at the University of Rwanda on Wednesday held performances to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China and the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the institute.

Confucius Institute at the University of Rwanda, is established in 2009 under the partnership between China's Chongqing Normal University and the University of Rwanda.

Over 300 people from China and Rwanda watched the performances held at the University of Rwanda campus in Rwanda's capital city of Kigali.

Rwandan students from GSOB Secondary School in southern province kicked off the show with a chorus in Chinese, followed by Chinese tai chi, dancing, crosstalk and other performances staged by students from the Confucius Institute's different teaching locations across the country.

Confucius Institute at the University of Rwanda is the first Confucius institute established by the Chongqing Normal University, which serves as its starting point of establishing Confucius institutes in different continents, said Chen Zhijun, vice-president of the Chongqing Normal University, shortly before the performances.
