Nitong Miyerkules, Pebrero 6, ikalawang araw ng Chinese New Year, pinasinayaan sa University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman ang tatlong araw na selebrasyon ng pinakamahalagang kapistahan sa kulturang Tsino.

Sa pasinaya, binati ni Michael Lim Tan, Chancellor ng UP Diliman ang mga panauhin at estudyante ng maligayang Chinese New Year sa wikang Filipino, Tsino, Hokkien at Ingles. Ani Tan, bunga ng daan-daang pagpapalitan ng mga Pilipino at Tsino, ang mga elementong Tsino ay nakakaimpluwensya sa kaugalian at pagkaing Pilipino. Hinimok din niya ang mga mag-aaral ng UP na magbukas ng isip para makilala ang iba't ibang kultura.

The City College of Angeles (CCA) in partnership with the Confucius Institute of University at the Philippines - Diliman (CI-UPD) held its annual Chinese New Year Festival 2019 with the theme “One Belt, One Road, One Heritage” last January 28 at the CCA Administration Hall.

Now on its third year, the festival serves as a testament to the active partnership between the CCA and CI-UPD to support students' education about the world, and to help them gain in-depth understanding of other countries and their cultures.

October 26, 2018. The Freeport in Pampanga and Subic Bay Freeport in Zambales are taking more steps to handle the influx of Chinese tourists and investors, beginning with the training of their personnel in the Chinese language and culture. Mandarin lessons were part of the commitment made on Friday when Noel Manankil, Clark Development Corp. (CDC) president, and Wilma Eisma, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) chair and administrator, signed a memorandum of understanding with Michael Tan, University of the Philippines Diliman Chancellor.

 The Confucius Institute at the University of the Philippines hosted the "Confucius Institute Open Day" from September 26 to 28, 2018. In this open-day event, the Confucius Institute at the University of the Philippines closely follows the theme of the times. With the concept of “harmony and health”, two lectures on acupuncture demonstrations of Chinese medicine were held at the University of the Philippines, Manila Campus and Makati University.

UP Diliman, through its Confucius Institute, will be holding Chinese Mandarin classes for tour guides and port personnel in Subic to allow them to effectively communicate with tens of thousands of Chinese tourists visiting Subic and its environs, brought about by the influx of cruise ship liners now calling on the Port of Subic Bay.
