As part of the festivities leading up to the 60th Anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, the Chinese Government has organized a series of events for foreigners.

The group of foreign experts from Beijing Review was invited to attend an exhibition gala event at the Beijing Exhibition Center. I thought it was intended for communications expats only, but a few ambassadors and diplomats from all over the world were there too.

The event was by invitation only and is held once every ten years, I was told.

It was impressive, to say the least, as the exhibits displayed all the advances in science, industry and culture that China had made in the last 60 years.
