The Opportunity China team are delighted to congratulate business partner and friend, Dr. Hong Lu, who has been recognised in the 2015 list of royal recipients for the Queen’s birthday honours list. She has received an Order of the British Empire (OBE) for her contributions to the Chinese community and for her efforts in promoting China UK relations.
Dr. Lu is the Coordinator of The Confucius Institute for Business London (CIBL), which was established at the London School of Economics in 2006 and is one of 25 Confucius Institutes in the UK. The Institute aims to promote Chinese for business to the local community and foster greater understanding of Chinese language and business culture. She is also the chair of the CEDP Chinese Centre in Brighton, which does highly commendable charitable work in the local community.
On receiving the award, Hong said, “I want to thank everyone who has supported me over the years in academic teaching on Chinese language and culture and in running Chinese cultural-related activities. This award belongs to the community as a whole although I have the privilege of wearing it.”
Again, many congratulations to Hong for her exceptional achievement. It is our honour to work with you, and we look forward to developing our partnership for many years to come.
