The Confucius Institute, the fourth of its kind in Kenya, was officially launched at Moi University located in Eldoret town of Kenya’s western region.

The institute which has been founded in partnership with Shanghai-based Donghua University offers courses in Chinese language and culture.

In a speech read out by Chinese counselor, Yao Ming, Chinese envoy to Kenya, Liu Xianfa said Donghua University, which leads in China's textile technology, has advantages in textile science and engineering.

“While Moi University also specialises in textile science, with Rivatex, an affiliate of Moi University being a key project that enjoys support of the Kenyan government,” Xianfa added.

The institute is also expected to lead to more cooperation in the fields of textile engineering and fashion design.

Around 300 students and workers from Rivatex have enrolled in different language courses offered by the newly-launched institute. (AR)
