Uruguayan Kids to Travel to China as Part of Student Exchange Program

MONTEVIDEO – Five sixth-graders from a Montevideo school will travel to China this month to participate in a cultural exchange program, part of a project presented on Monday by the Uruguayan Education and Culture Ministry in collaboration with the Chinese embassy.

Education Minister Maria Julia Muñoz highlighted the importance of the program, which will allow “the Chinese people to get to know” Uruguay, adding that she hopes that her country will welcome students from the Asian nation in the future.

Also in attendance was Chinese Ambassador to Uruguay Wang Gang, who described the program as “reflecting the exchange currently existing between the two countries,” which goes beyond political and economic matters, also going into the cultural terrain.

“We are Uruguay’s foremost trade partner and the largest importer of the most important Uruguayan products, which no doubt creates a solid base for a cultural and humanistic exchange between both countries,” he told reporters.

Gang added that he hopes to “be able to promote” a future student exchange in the opposite direction.

The children will travel to the Asian giant accompanied by two teachers and will participate in an assortment of activities in various parts of the country, school principal Federico Mesa – who will also go to China – told EFE.

Mesa said that the children are learning Chinese so that they may get a “notion of the language and culture” of the country.
