- At a Chinese American gala event on Thursday, Chinese ambassador to the U.S. Qin Gang called on Chinese Americans to “help build [a] China-U.S. friendship" and “bridge differences and ease confrontation.”
- In the opening of his speech, Ambassador Qin also added that “ultimately Chinese Americans can only prosper when the China-U.S. relationship enjoys sound and stable development.”
- Qin described the U.S. and China as “going through serious difficulties” and stated, “The China-U.S. relationship concerns not only the future of the world, but also the welfare of Chinese Americans.”
- The reception was held from May 5-7 in Washington, D.C., and included members of the Committee of 100 in attendance.
- As with previous years, members and speakers at the annual conference and gala met to discuss the “state of Chinese Americans” as well as “the future of the U.S. China relationship.”
- In the last part of his speech, Ambassador Qin promoted the idea of younger generations connecting more with their Chinese ancestry.
- “No matter where they are, people of Chinese origin share the same ancestry. The yellow skin and dark eyes are a gift from our ancestors,” he told the audience.
