National Pulse: Confucius Institute headquarters, colloquially known as Hanban, has sponsored an annual National Chinese Language Conference (NCLC) since 2007.
It aims to amplify the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) funded initiatives, which masquerade as language and culture initiatives despite being a propaganda front, by “enhancing the capacity for teaching and learning of Chinese language culture by sharing cutting–edge practices and examples with educators and policymakers.”
Joe Biden-endorser Hagel remarked on a “new world order” emerging, extolling the merits of a “global community underpinned by a global economy.” He expounds upon the importance of a “platform, a relationship, and a structure of common interests for common purpose based on some values we share.”
John Negroponte, appointed Director of National Intelligence and later Deputy Secretary of State under President George W. Bush, also spoke at the conference alongside Hanban Director Xu Lin and Chinese Ambassador Zhang Yesui, individuals with an extensive history working for the CCP. more
