"Experience China", part of the cultural exchange activities organized by China's State Council Information Office (SCIO) to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Kenya, took place at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre in Kenya's capital Nairobi on September 22, 2013. Li Wufeng, vice minister of the SCIO, Liu Guangyuan, China's ambassador to Kenya, and a representative of Kenya's president were in attendance.

"China and Kenya share similar histories and have common goals for development. As China is pursuing the China Dream, the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, Kenya also moves forward to achieve the Kenya Vision 2030. The people of China and Kenya share similar dreams and we can realize our respective dreams as long as we treat each other as equals, help each other and make joint efforts," said Li Wufeng in his opening address.

Ambassador Liu Guangyuan praised the close cooperation between both nations, hoping that "China and Kenya can maintain the peaceful, friendly, multi-level cooperation relationship permanently."

Artists from China and Kenya gave a joint performance after the opening ceremony, featuring acrobatics, martial arts, singing and dancing, winning a standing ovation from an audience of more than 2,000 people.

The "Experience China" activity also includes a symposium held among China and Kenya's media organizations, a Chinese documentary show at the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation and an agreement signed to provide Kenya with Chinese TV programs.
