In 2016, the Confucius Institutes and Confucius Classrooms throughout the world hold 2.1 million students and attract 13 million people to attend their cultural activities.

The Confucius Institute program was initiated in 2004 to satisfy the surging overseas demand for Chinese language learning. The Confucius Institutes and Confucius Classrooms, both named for the ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius, serve as non-profit public institutions aiming to promote Chinese language and culture in foreign countries.
