On August 30, 2014, the Chinese Embassy in Sierra Leone held a farewell reception for 30 Sierra Leonean students who were awarded Chinese Government Scholarships. Mr. Fan Xiaodong, Political Counsellor of the Chinese Embassy, Mr. Mansaray Pearce, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Members of Sino-Sierra Leone Alumni Association(SISLAA)attended the reception. Reporters from SLBC, Concord Times and Awoko Newspaper were present to cover the event.

Counsellor Fan Xiaodong extended his warm congratulations to the 30 excellent students who were awarded Chinese Government Scholarships and stated that although Ebola is still spreading in Sierra Leone, the Chinese government attached great importance to the Sierra Leonean students. Although many airlines have suspended their flights to Freetown, the Chinese Embassy still tried all possible ways to book air tickets for all the students, which fully demonstrated the deep friendship between China and Sierra Leone. He urged all the students to study hard and make due contribution to Sierra Leone's development and China-Sierra Leone friendship.

Mr. Mansaray Pearce and members of SISLAA expressed their appreciations to the Chinese government and people for assisting Sierra Leone in human resources development, encouraged all the students to study hard and get a better understanding of the Chinese society and culture so as to contribute to the deepening of Sierra Leone-China friendly and cooperative relations.

A student representative expressed deep gratitude to the Chinese government for providing scholarships to Sierra Leonean students, and promised that they will study hard to become the constructors of the socio-economic development of Sierra Leone and inheritors of Sierra Leone-China friendship.

This batch of 30 Sierra Leonean students awarded Chinese Government Scholarships is scheduled to leave for China on September 3. They will major in such subjects as agriculture, medicine, economics, engineering, computer science, etc. in different Chinese universities.
