Local officials here expressed gratitude today to the Chinese Embassy in Philippines for bringing photo exhibit reflecting the friendship between the two countries over the past 35 years.

Tagum City Mayor Rey Uy said the photo exhibit, which opened today, gives the public a chance to catch a glimpse of the "deep and strong bond of cooperation between China and the Philippines in the last three decades." "Our city is very honored and blessed that the Chinese government through the Chinese embassy chose to visit us and conduct this photo exhibition. This shows the strong bond that is shared between our two countries," Uy, a son of Chinese migrants, said at the exhibition.

This was the first Chinese photo exhibition ever held here. There are scores of photos portraying Filipino-Chinese friendly relations in various aspects, according to Wu Jianhua, a cultural official with the Chinese embassy.

The exhibit is to be opened to students from all schools of the city "so they may understand, appreciate and value the strong friendship their country with China," a city official said.
