China Marks Its 64th Anniversary at Radisson
October the first is the day of founding the People’s Republic of China. In Tbilisi it was celebrated on 30 September, at Radisson Blue Iveria Hotel that became a venue for the new Ambassador Plenipotentiary and Extraordinary of China Mr. Bin Yue.
After attending the traditional national anthems of both countries, the new ambassador stepped forward to the audience in front of him and stated: “Tomorrow, we will be celebrating the 64th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China. Although,
it has only been 10 days since my arrival in Georgia, the beautiful landscapes and hospitable Georgian people have already made a deep impression on me. “ He noted that 64 years is only a flash compared to the 5000-year history of the Chinese nation, “but this period of 64 years, especially the last 30 years of reform and opening up has been the fastest developing period, creating miracle in the world history. Today’s China enjoys stability and economic development, Chinese people live and work in peace and contentment, and China’s global weight and influence are increasing, “Mr. Bin Yue added that China has become the second largest economy in the world. In 2012, China’s GDP increased by 7.8% compared to 2011; the foreign trade turnover reached 3.87 trillion USD, and GDP per capita stood at 6100 USD.
“In the beginning of this year, the change in the Chinese Government was accomplished smoothly. The new government sticks to the approach of pursuing steady growth, structural readjustment and promoting reforms and has made it clear that China’s growth in the coming years should be predicated on higher quality and efficiency.”
Mr. Ambassador added that both China and Georgia are developing countries with a long history and marvelous culture. “There is a long standing friendship between Chinese and Georgian people, the ancient Silk Road closely connecting the two countries and peoples. Over 20 years, the bilateral relations keep healthy and steady development. “At the end of his speech, the ambassador made a toast to the prosperity of both countries and happiness of the two nations”.
Giorgi Kvirikashvili, Minister of Economic Development of the country was the one who made speech on behalf of the Georgian side. “Let me use this opportunity to also note that last year we celebrated 20 year anniversary since the establishment of diplomatic relations between Georgia and China. I would like to note with great pleasure that this anniversary reflects 20 years of friendship, understanding and fruitful mutual cooperation.” He added that Georgia values the fact that People’s Republic of China was one of the first to recognize the independence of Georgia, established diplomatic relations, opened the embassy in Tbilisi and gave a strong impetus to further development of existing historic and cultural ties between the two countries.
“In the past years we have witnessed significant progress and achievements in many different areas. In the last few years we have seen a remarkable increase in Chinese investments to Georgia; bilateral trade and the number of Chinese visitors are also on the rise; China is in the list of top five trade partners of Georgia. This is a unique possibility for Georgia to become a bridge between Europe and Asia for flexible transfer of goods, capital, and people.”
He also mentioned that the direct regular flights between Tbilisi and Urumchi turned out to be important step towards enhancing trade and economic cooperation, tourism and people-to-people relations. “Best wishes on your National Day!”
The day was capped with an informal part of the evening.
