Starting June 27, the Foundation is holding the exhibition Traditional Chinese Art to celebrate the opening of the FAAP - Confucius Institute for Business.


These artists are members of the National Academy of Painting and the Central Fine Arts Academy of China, and are also active as researchers with the Cultural Exchange Center at the Chinese for Business Language Teaching Institute.

FAAP - Confucius Institute for Business

In partnership with the University of International Business & Economics (UIBE), FAAP's São Paulo campus is hosting a unit of the Confucius Institute for Business.
The Institute teaches Chinese language and culture while emphasizing business. In addition to language, it offers business seminars, postgraduate-level courses, and cultural and artistic activities fostering mutual understanding between Brazil and China while building a sophisticated platform for China- related subjects.

HANBAN and the Confucius Institute

The mission of the nonprofit Confucius Institute is to promote Chinese language and culture worldwide as an entity attached to the Ministry of Education in China, represented by the Bureau for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language (Chinese abbreviation: Hanban).
The Confucius Institute's agreements for cooperation with foreign and Chinese higher education institutions are supported by HANBAN. Currently, there are over 322 institutes worldwide, in addition to 369 offices or smaller facilities, but there are only a few in Brazil, so the FAAP - Confucius Institute for Business is a standout in terms of its proposal, thus serving as a center for contacts between Brazil and China.

University of International Business & Economics (UIBE), partnership with FAAP

There could be no better institution than the University of International Business & Economics (UIBE) to act as FAAP's partner for the Confucius Institute for Business. It is the reference institution where China's business elite is trained, having been founded in 1951 as the Beijing Institute for International Trade, then designated by the government in 1960 to act as a key educational institution due to the relevance of its programs. In 1997, UIBE was included in Project 211, a government program to ensure that 100 Chinese universities become higher education institutions of the very highest quality.
UIBE is now one of the most respected institutions in China and a leader in trade, business administration and management, international relations, regional studies and languages. Its Word Trade Organization Institute leads foreign trade research and programs in China.
