It was an amazing mix of cultures as the Exhibition of Arts and Culture: Argentina-China opened on June 24 in Beijing.

The exhibition, which was held at the Embassy of Argentina and co-hosted by the International Art and Business Alliance, featured Chinese calligraphy and paintings, as well as traditional music and costumes.

Not to be outdone, Xu Xuanyi, chairwoman of Chinese Association of Argentine Tango, performed the traditional dance of Argentina with her partner for the guests.

Li Baorong, deputy director-general of the Latin American Department of Ministry of Foreign Affairs, was present for the event along with other officials from both countries.

According the Argentine embassy, political, economic and social ties with China are at an all-time high.

The exhibition was cited as a prime example of how to bolster relations through arts and culture.
