Diplomatic Ties between China and Ireland
PhD candidate Mengdi Wang attended the 2019 Chinese New Year reception as a guest of the Chinese Ambassador to Ireland, Dr. Yue Xiaoyong organised by the Embassy of P.R.China in Ireland.
This year is the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Ireland.
Mengdi was invited to share her story about student life in Trinity and made special reference of appreciation to her supervisor Dr. Ann Devitt who welcomed Mengdi to her home to celebrate Christmas with her family. Mengdi fondly mentioned her hometown of Jiaozuo which is famous for Taichi Kungfu. Mengdi was offered a platform to introduce Chinese language and culture to young Irish people by UCD Confucius Institute and the Chinese Language School of Overseas Service Centre Dublin.
We wish Mengdi well with her studies in Ireland.
