Hainan has been promoting rural tourism to invigorate its rural areas and improve the living standards of rural people, Liu said.
Over a history of thousands of years, Chinese people have always held fast to their dreams and made endless efforts, he said, citing ancient Chinese mythology, such as Pangu creating the world, Nyuwa patching up the sky, Fuxi drawing eight diagrams, Shennong tasting herbs, Kuafu chasing the sun, Jingwei filling up the sea and Yugong removing mountains.
Over the past thousands of years, the Chinese people have been united and stuck together through thick and thin, built a united country with various nationalities, developed harmonious relationships between 56 diverse and interwoven ethnic groups and formed a big Chinese family where they keep watch for and help defend each other, Xi said.
Zhang said China's National People's Congress (NPC) stands ready to work with Gambia's National Assembly to implement the consensus reached between the two heads of state.
BEIJING -- China will promote cooperation with Gambia in agricultural technology, fishery processing, infrastructure development and tourism to achieve win-win results, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said on Friday.
The two countries established formal diplomatic links in 1974, but China suspended relations in 1995 when the west African country resumed so-called "diplomatic" ties with Taiwan. Gambia severed ties with Taiwan in 2013.
The exhibition will be at VMFA from Nov 18 to March 11, 2018, after which it will move to the Cincinnati Art Museum in Ohio.
