The agreement, which was signed by HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh and Mr. Jia Yuming, Secretary of the Party Committee, comes to enhance the relationship between China and Jordan, strengthen Jordanian understanding towards Chinese language and culture and provide a better and favorable environment for Jordanian Chinese language learners.

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh expressed his pride that the Chinese government has placed its confidence in his economic vision on the "Belt and Road" initiative in which he expressed TAG-Org's willingness to establish an information and awareness center on this initiative in Jordan for its significant economic importance.
It is worth noting that HE Mr. Xi Jinping, President of the People's Republic of China honored Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh in person for his distinguished contribution in enhancing the Sino-Arab relations and for his role in strengthening ties between China and the Arab countries in the fields of culture, education and economy through TAG-Org's three offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh added that TAG-Confucius aims to set up a university-counseling center for Jordanian students wishing to study in China, taking into consideration that TAG-Org is the only entity in the Kingdom to issue visas to China through the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Visa Center.
