The Opening Ceremony of Peruvian Gastronomy Festival jointly organized by the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (CPAFFC), Peru-China Culture Association (PCCA), Peruvian Embassy in China and Comisión de Promoción del Perú para la Exportación y el Turismo (PROMPERú) was held in Beijing on November 1st, 2017.

Teresa Hoo, Secretary General of PCCA and General Manager of Peru-China Chamber Commerce (PCCC), attended the dinner.

Vice President Xie Yuan said in his speech that, the bilateral relations had maintained long-term stable and healthy development, and also the people-to-people and culture exchanges had grown increasingly since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Peru 46 years before. The opening ceremony of Peruvian Gastronomy Festival today is another good example to indicate the friendly cooperation and closely exchange between the two countries.
