The Macau Ricci Institute is a nonprofit, study and research institution dedicated to fostering better mutual understanding between China and the world community.
The Institute is supported entirely by contributions from corporations, foundations, and individuals that believe in the work of cultural exchange, discovery, and encounter between China and the international community. Every program at the Institute is focused on increasing inter-cultural exchanges, fostering better mutual understanding, and deepening knowledge of oneself, one's own culture, and the differences in how people perceive the world around them. The overall aim is to smooth the path for a deeper integration of China into the international community.
Supporters of the Institute recognize that through study, research, and reflection about other cultures, we are able to dialogue and from this comes a platform for understanding. Anybody who sees the importance of using study, encounter and reflection as a way of reaching out to the Chinese people for a common and better future is a supporter of the Institute.
