Royal Opening of the Dickson Poon University of Oxford China Centre Building

The Duke of Cambridge has formally opened the Dickson Poon University of Oxford China Centre Building in the grounds of St Hugh’s College. The University of Oxford has been regarded as Europe’s leading centre for the study of China for some time. The Centre now has a dedicated building bringing its academics with an interest in China under the same roof.

The Duke officially opened the China Centre building by joining others in a traditional Chinese ribbon-cutting ceremony in its courtyard garden. He said: 'The China Centre is an enormous achievement. It stands on the foundations of many centuries of learning in the University of Oxford about China, and it marks a significant leap forward. The strength and creativity of the partnership between the University and St Hugh's provides a solid foundation for the creation of what has the potential to become the foremost place of study about China in the world.'
