Confucius Institutes form a network of cultural and educational centers created by Chinese National Office for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language (Hanban). Confucius Institutes throughout the globe number over 120.

The mission of Confucius institutes consists in contributing to global cultural diversity and harmony through teaching Chinese language and culture. The Institutes seek to enable everyone interested in learning Chinese to pursue their aim by meeting the demands of the overseas learners to the utmost degree.

As Belarus and China have a long history of fruitful cooperation in the fields of science and technology, the establishment of a Sci-Tech oriented Confucius Institute was just a matter of time.

The Agreement on establishing the BNTU Confucius Institute on Science and Technology was signed in Beijing on December 5, 2013, and the Grand Opening Ceremony at the BNTU took place on October 21, 2014.
