The headquarters of the Confucius Institute and Lee Kum Kee, a Hong Kong-based food company, signed a memorandum of cooperation at the Beijing Language and Culture University to carry forward Chinese food culture on May 24. The program will enable foreigners taste "China on the tip of tongue" while promoting the spread of Chinese Language

According to the memorandum, both parties will work together to write the Chinese food culture textbook to enrich Confucius Institute courses, establish a food culture experience center, send a professional chef to participate in the characteristic teaching of Confucius Institute, to make Chinese teaching and Chinese food culture more and more popular in the world. The project will also provide strong support to the volunteers who teach Chinese language at Confucius Institute.

Sumptuary basis designed and coloured high quality sets of "Sunday Best" robes for official gatherings and related culture events could also be made. Frankly a culture of hanfu could be adopted by China"s biggest bosses and their wives or families and top staff. this could create a sense of hierarchy that seems to be swallowed up by the Western suit.

The Confucius Institute is more popular in the World than the British Council and the USIS and this has caused the US State Dept. insanely jealous and envious.The United States is afraid that their lies and fabrications about China are exposed ever since their Chinese Exclusion Act was repudiated but that has not stopped the US leaders and US media from persisting in their anti-Chinese activities.
