The Chinese Resource Centre of Northern Ireland

In 2011, the Chinese Resource Centre, managed by Chinese Welfare Association, opened its doors on Monday 19th September. This has been a great achievement for the Chinese community. Situated on the banks of the river Lagan, on the leafy Ormeau Embankment, the new £1.3 million, 880 square metre centre boasts a state-of-the-art multipurpose hall, training rooms, library, conference rooms, creche and playground.

It aims to enhance diversity and develop the participation of Chinese people in all aspects of social, cultural, economic and public life across Northern Ireland. The Chinese Chamber of Commerce has supported this project for over 14 years and helped fundraise amongst the Chinese community to support the Centre. The opening of the Centre remains’ our proudest moment’ to date.
