UIBE African students perform at the 2016 CCTV Mid-Autumn Evening Gala.
China's traditional Mid-Autumn Festival will be celebrated on September 15th 2016. The Mid-Autumn Festival is the occasion for all families to reunite. Just like the old saying goes: “one misses his family more than ever on holidays”. During this year's CCTV Mid-Autumn Evening Gala, a soulful poem, "the sun of life", will be dedicated to the members of China’s long-term medical assistance team, who are on duty in Africa and thus, are not able to reunite with their families. The poetry recitation is performed by 3 African students from the University of International Business and Economics: O’scawn, PhD student from Cote d'Ivoire; Mary, Master student from Senegal, and Rosemond, Undergraduate student from Togo. On September 15th 2016 at 20:00, CCTV-1, CCTV-4, and CNTV will broadcast live the Evening Gala.
The University of International Business and Economics has always been at the forefront of international student education in China. In recent years, more than 3,000 international students from more than 140 countries study each year in UIBE. Among them, there are more than 200 students coming from more than 40 African countries.
