The competition called "Chinese Language Bridge" (or "Chinese Bridge") has been receiving financial and organizational support from the PRC government for a number of years in order to popularize and study the Chinese language, to get to know the country's culture and literature more deeply. Often, reviews are held on the basis of Confucius Institutes located in different countries of the world.

In his welcoming speech, the director of the Confucius Institute, Professor Rafik Abbasov noted that in recent years there has been a steady increase in the number of Azerbaijani students, students at universities in China.
