• Construction of the Guiyang Confucius Academy was completed in September 2012, at a time when China was vigorously developing its culture and promoting traditional virtues. The Academy is located in the mountains of Guizhou Province. It adheres to the principles of “allowing the past to serve the present, and passing down and teaching traditions”, and establishes a “base to inherit and promote Confucianism and to teach and start a new style in the society”.
