On May 6, Ambassador Wang Lutong attended the awards ceremony for the "2016 Award for Outstanding Self-financed Chinese Students Abroad" held at the Education Section of the Chinese Embassy in New Zealand. Ambassador Wang delivered a speech at the ceremony and awarded the certificates and scholarships to award-winning students of the "National Award for Outstanding Self-financed Chinese Students Abroad" and the "Xinjiang Award for Outstanding Self-financed Chinese Students Abroad".

Ambassador Wang expressed his warm congratulations to the award-winning students, their families and mentors, noting that the establishment of these two scholarships reflected the attention and care of the Chinese Government for its self-financed students. China now needs more talents than ever before, and overseas students are expected to serve their motherland in a variety of ways upon the completion of their studies abroad. Ambassador Wang also pointed out that the continuous strengthening of the friendly and cooperative relationship between China and New Zealand has provided more opportunities for Chinese students in New Zealand. Premier Li Keqiang paid a successful visit to New Zealand in March this year, adding new items to the long list of "first" initiatives in bilateral relations. Ambassador Wang hoped that the Chinese students in New Zealand be not only witnesses of but also participants in the development of China–New Zealand relations.

The "National Award for Outstanding Self-financed Chinese Students Abroad" award-winning student, Wang Jing, and the "Xinjiang Award for Outstanding Self-financed Chinese Students Abroad" award-winning student, Yang Xu, delivered speeches on behalf of the award-winning students respectively. Participants in this event included the families and mentors of the students, professors of Chinese ethnicity, representatives from the students and scholars associations, representatives of government-sponsored and self-financed overseas Chinese students and the media.
