On 19 May 2016, the Chinese Embassy in Australia held a ceremony for nine outstanding self-financed students winning Chinese Government Award 2015. H.E. Ambassador Cheng Jingye presented awards to the winners and delivered a speech.

Ambassador Cheng extended his congratulations to all government award recipients. He pointed out that the award was the best celebration for their dedication to academic exploration. He encouraged them to exert more efforts, get prepared for serving the community and motherland, and commit themselves to promoting mutual understanding and friendship between China and Australia. In addition he sent his best wishes to all Chinese students and scholars for safe stay and rewarding work in Australia.

The Chinese government attaches great importance to how Chinese students and scholars study and work overseas. Since 2003 when Chinese Ministries of Finance and Education rolled out the Government Award Program to honor overseas Chinese students with outstanding academic accomplishments, more than 4900 students around the world have won the award.
