2016/03/01

On February 29, 2016, the 2016 China-US Tourism Year was launched in Beijing. President Xi Jinping sent a congratulation message to the opening ceremony.

Xi Jinping pointed out that the 2016 China-US Tourism Year co-organized by China and the US is an important achievement reached by both sides during my state visit to the US last September. On the occasion of this opening ceremony of the 2016 China-US Tourism Year, on behalf of the Chinese government and the Chinese people, and in my own name, I would like to extend my warm congratulations to the launching of the China-US Tourism Year and my warm welcome to American friends coming from afar.

Xi Jinping pointed out that since the establishment of the China-US diplomatic relations 37 years ago, the bilateral relations have achieved historic development. In recent years, both sides have made joint efforts to promote the construction of a new model of major-country relations between China and the US, and the two countries have conducted fruitful coordination and cooperation in many important fields as well as major international and regional issues. All these efforts not only bring benefits to both countries and their peoples, but also strongly promote world peace, stability and prosperity.

Xi Jinping said that both China and the US boast a splendid culture and beautiful landscape, and the two peoples share a strong wish to deepen their understanding and enhance their friendship. He hopes that the two sides will take the Tourism Year as an opportunity to expand personnel exchanges and enhance cultural exchanges, fostering more profound public opinion basis and social foundation for the development of the China-US relations. We welcome more American friends to travel to China and wish the 2016 China-US Tourism Year a complete success.
