The artworks of Chinese and Pakistani artists displayed today vividly portray their deep feelings about social culture, historical evolution and customs of China and Pakistan in a macro and true manner. Those amazing artworks were truly a great gift for the 70th anniversary celebration. The Ambassador of Pakistan to China, H.E.Mr.Moin UI Haque, delivered a welcome speech.
Ambassador Moin UI Haque highly praised Home and Abroad News Press for their open, friendly and cooperative attitudes and Beijing Huahui Guowen International Auction Co., Ltd. for their strong support for this event. At the same time, he specially thanked the President of Home and Abroad News Press Mrs.Wei Yan and the Shanghai National Expo Park officials for establishing the Pakistan National Pavilion in the Shanghai National Expo Park as one of the first 21 countries entered the park. He also expressed that they will take this opportunity to promote Pakistan and look forward to cooperating with Shanghai National Expo Park and other Chinese organizations in the fields of culture, economy, trade, and tourism.
Ambassador Moin UI Haque believes that this exhibition of photographs and paintings by artists of the two countries is one of serial arts events on celebrating the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Pakistan. So far, we have organized more than 70 events in different fields. These events not only celebrate this milestone marking the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Pakistan, but also bring the two peoples closer to each other. They strongly proved that China and Pakistan’s friendship is an all-weather strategic partnership.
Mrs.Wei Yan also delivered a speech. She said that we are gathered here today and honored to be the co-host of the China and Pakistan Photography and Paintings Exhibition. I really feel the artistic charm of Chinese and Pakistani artists. Home and Abroad News Press will make more contributions to the cultural self-confidence and the cultural prosperity of the two countries to further promote the friendship between China and Pakistan.
She also pointed out that Home and Abroad News Press is a good friend of the Pakistani people. We have organized junior journalists to visit and interview with the Pakistani Embassy and school for six times, and each time they felt the strong atmosphere of "Iron Brothers" between China and Pakistan.
February 3rd this year, Home and Abroad News Press and the Global Pharmaceutical Trading Center went to the Pakistani Embassy in China to donate ¥100,000 valued anti-pandemic medical supplies. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chinese and Pakistani governments and peoples helped each other and set an example for other countries, playing an important role in promoting the comprehensive cooperative partnership between China and Pakistan. Since 2003 Home and Abroad News Press and the Pakistani Embassy in China have established close interactions. In the past 18 years, Home and Abroad News Press and the four successive Pakistani ambassadors to China have had developed profound friendship.
Wei Yan said that today’s exhibition, through the photography and calligraphy works, will enable the visitors to have an in-depth understanding of China and Pakistan’s natural landscape, national conditions and customs, as well as a spiritual dialoguewith Pakistani artists, which will further enhance the mutual understanding and friendship between the artists of the two countries. It will certainly promote the cultural exchange and integration between China and Pakistan and create a new chapter in the friendship between the peoples of China and Pakistan.
At the opening ceremony, Moin UI Haque presented the exhibition participation certificates to outstanding Chinese and Pakistani artists. They are Pakistani photographers Mr. Syed Mehdi Bukhari, Mr.Azhar Hafiz, and Chinese calligrapher and painters Mr.Zhang Bin, Mr.Feng Shubin, Mr.Chen Manchun, Mr.Li Shuangliang, Ms.Zhang Xiaowen, Mrs.Wen Yan, Mrs.Liu Guiying and Mr.Hu Shumeng.
The friendship between the nations lies in the friendship of the peoples, and the friendship among the people lies in the communication between true hearts. China and Pakistan are two countries that embrace each other's heart and share a friendship with common destiny. Over the past 70 years, the two countries have looked after each other and have developed into all-weather strategic cooperative partnership. China-Pakistan friendship is unbreakable and as solid as a rock. At the end of the opening ceremony, Ambassador Moin UI Haque said loudly in Chinese: “Pakistan-China friendship will go on forever!"
