The Swire Group has been in business for over two centuries, and for more than half that time has supported education around the world. In 2016, we marked our 200th anniversary and 150 years of business in Greater China by creating the Swire Chinese Language Foundation. Welcome to an exciting new chapter in our history.

Our mission

The Foundation’s mission is to spread the teaching of Mandarin Chinese more broadly across the United Kingdom. Over time, we hope thereby to help forge stronger relations and a greater understanding between Britain and China.
