MFU and China have officially established cooperation since 1999. MFU received a great support from the Chinese government and the Chinese embassy in Bangkok in helping establish Sirinthorn Chinese Language and Culture Center and the Confucius institute to support the teaching of Chinese language and culture, promote research and spread knowledge and understanding of China. Moreover, the Chinese embassy in Bangkok has facilitated Chinese teachers to teach at MFU and promoted several cultural activities. The great and meaningful success of cooperation in Chinese language teaching and culture exchange can be seen from the number of students who want to study Chinese language in School of Sinology as well as the number of students who join many Chinese cultural activities. Furthermore, there were several official courtesy visits and academic activities between MFU and the Chinese Embassy.
