Malaysian Weiqi Association Visit to Shantou-Guangdong – Organized by Kong Zi Institute

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The visit made by the Malaysian Weiqi Association to Hainan last year had a very positive impact in enhancing the networking of Weiqi associations between Malaysia and China. This year, Kongzi Institute organized the second delegation to Shantou Guangdong from 19 to 22 January 2018. Shantou is the most important city for the Weiqi development, and it is called the hometown of Weiqi in China.

In the 3 days trip, they visited the local Weiqi Association and Weiqi School in Shantou, Chaozhou, and Jieyang. Whilst there the delegation interacted with the staffs and players and also learned how to organize Weiqi activity, to promote the marketing and to train the teachers. Local Weiqi members warmly welcomed the delegation and shared their experience in promoting Weiqi.

After the talk, several matches were organized. Apart from adult players from the three cities, the delegation also contested with the junior players to asses their levels and skills. The local TV  station and mass media made a good coverage of the visit.

Some players from Wuhan and Jangxi participated in the Malaysian Weiqi Open Championship last year. Subsequent to this visit,  we hope more Weiqi-lovers from China will join the competition in 2018.





去年的马来西亚围棋公开赛已经吸引了来自中国武汉和江西的棋手来马参加,相信通过这次的交流活动,在2018年的公开赛,马来西亚将会迎来更多的中国棋迷。[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”5036″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery interval=”3″ images=”5037,5038,5039,5040″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
