The Vice President of the PRC, Mr. Xi Jinping was invited to Gothenburg, the second biggest city in Sweden to celebrate 60 years of friendship between the two countries. Sweden has recognized the People´s Republic of China since 1950. Mr. Xi Jinping gave a talk at the city hall for Swedish enterprises and met the Prime Minister of Sweden, Fredrik Reinfeldt, the Deputy Minister Maud Olofsson and other important politicians.

Mr. Xi Jinping witnessed the historical moment when Volvo PV and Geely Automobile, the Chinese automaker, signed the final agreement for the business transaction on Volvo´s transformation.
Then it was written in Dagens Nyheter, a daily newspaper in Sweden with the largest morning circulation, that the New World Order has come forward. Sweden is now China’s largest trade partner in Northern Europe.

Mr. Xi Jinping was in Sweden for several days and visited many important institutions. Approximately four to five hundred Han Chinese and other minorities from other areas of China were invited to meet him. I was one of them and had a great opportunity to meet him. I presented myself by shaking hands with him and with the words “Tashi Delek”. I was also able to present a book “The Jewels of Tibet” as well as a letter that says:

The reasons for building 108 schools in Tibet:

A) To support and develop culture and tradition through education
b) If appropriate, according to the Chinese policy, I would like to facilitate and extend my help for a dialogue between Beijing and Dharamsala.

My sincere wish is that one day we all can be with our loved ones in
Tibet-China.
It is extremely comfortable and beautiful abroad, but “home is where the heart is”.

60 years friendship between the People´s Republic of China and Sweden.
