Traditional Chinese dance enthralled the Colombians on January 22 in the southern American country’s capital city of Bogota.
The performance was a gift given presented by Li Nianping to the Colombian public. He just started to serve as Chinese ambassador on December 17.

“It is my great honor and I am very pleased to be working in Colombia at the time that the two countries are at their best levels of relationships. The priority of our future work is to work hand in hand with our Colombian friends to advance the bilateral relations to a higher level.”
The show was done by the song and dance ensemble from China’s northeastern province of Jilin. The troupe once performed for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008 and has visited more than 30 countries.
