Greetings from the Institute for Pacific Asia on the occasion of China National Day


- Released on Sep 30, 2008

The Institute for Pacific Asia takes this opportunity to wish all our Chinese Students and alumni a heartfelt 59th anniversary of China's National Day. We are proud of our Chinese Students and hope Texas A&M University will remain the best destination for Chinese International students in the years to come. The People's Rpublic of China was founded on October 1, 1949 with a ceremony at Tiananmen Square. The Central People's Government passed the Resolution on the National Day of the People's Republic of China on December 2, 1949 and declared that October 1 is the National Day. The National Day is celebrated throughout mainland China, Hong Kong, and Macau with a variety of government-organised festivities, including fireworks and concerts. Public places, such as Tiananmen Square in Beijing, are decorated in a festive theme. Portraits of revered leaders, such as Sun Yat-Sen, are publicly displayed. Please do keep in touch with us and let us know what is happening with Aggies in Indonesia! You might be pleased to know that a recent Forbes magazine survey rated an Aggie degree among the most valuable degrees in the world: http://tamunews.tamu.edu/texas-am-placed-ninth-in-a-forbes-survey/
