Remarks by Ambassador Gui Congyou at the Opening Ceremony of the International Photo Exhibition Celebrating the 70th Founding Anniversary of the People's Republic of China

Dear guests and friends,

Ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to the opening ceremony of the International Photo Exhibition Celebrating the 70th Founding Anniversary of the People’s Republic of China.

The founding of the People’s Republic of China 70 years ago was of immense significance in the 5000 years of history of the Chinese nation, which profoundly altered the destiny of the Chinese people. Over the past 70 years, under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, the Chinese nation has achieved a great transformation, from standing up to becoming rich and growing strong, trailblazing a path of Socialism with Chinese characteristics and creating a miracle of rapid economic growth and long-lasting social stability.

The extraordinary achievements of China owe a lot to exchanges and cooperation with countries including Sweden and people around the world. China is the second largest economy, the biggest trading nation and the largest developing country in the world. China cannot grow without the world, and the world cannot develop without China. China’s door will only open up wider to the world, and will continue to share the dividends of its development with countries around the world.

To help other countries get a more objective, comprehensive and accurate understanding of China and better grasp the opportunities presented by China, we specially host this international exhibition of pictures. It has three sections: “Standing-up of the Chinese People”, “Spring Breeze of Reform and Opening up” and “Forging Ahead in a New Era”. The more than 160 precious and vivid pictures speak of every small step of the journey of the seven decades traversed by the new China, bringing to life the memories shared by the Chinese people and displaying the chronicle of the transformation of the country. I believe this exhibition will give you a better understanding of the past, present and future of China, and an idea of how Chinese people hope to join hands with people around the world for a community with a shared future for mankind and building a brighter future.

I wish the exhibition a full success!
