Winners of the first essay competition in Chinese receive awardsSociety
Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Winners of ‘Friendship between Mongolia and China through our eyes’ essay competition in Chinese received awards on April 19. The essay competition was organized by ‘Menggu Xiaxi bao’ newspaper operated by the MONTSAME national news agency on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries and 90th anniversary of the newspaper.
Opening the award presenting ceremony, Director of the MONTSAME news agency B.Ganchimeg said that the agency started organizing competitions named after its newspapers in English, Russian, Chinese and Japanese from 2018 in partnership with relevant Embassies and cultural and humanitarian organizations to increase number of its readers and partners and to improve the readers' feedback. I believe that scope of the competition, aimed at supporting students’ writing skill in Chinese and demonstrating youths’ evaluation on friendly ties between Mongolia and China and increasing their participation in this deed, would be expanded more.
Out of some 50 participants, 11th grader of Ui Tsai school M.Erkhembayar was selected in the first place, 12th grader of Orchlon school E.Uyanga in the second place and 11th grader of Darkhan Tsaihun school B.Zolbayar in the third place.
First prize winner of the competition M.Erkhembayar said, "China is our neighbor country. I chose to learn Chinese since more and more countries are studying Chinese language and culture. In my essay I expressed my opinion about friendship history of Mongolia and China and future development of the two countries. I strive for learning Chinese well in the future to make my contribution in international relations."
