We know that agrand exhibition of achievements in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the PRC kicked off yesterday and is open to the public. The general public is anticipating it. Can you introduce it? What highlights should visitors be sure not to miss?

Ning Jizhe:

This is a good question. As you said, with the upcoming 70th anniversary of the founding of the PRC, the exhibition of achievements in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the PRC is one of the earliest commemorative activities open to the general public. General Secretary Xi Jinping visited the exhibition and made remarks at the Beijing Exhibition Center yesterday afternoon. Yesterday morning, Premier Li Keqiang attended the opening ceremony of the exhibition and delivered a speech. Party and state leaders and some officials and residents of Beijing have already visited the exhibition. There are several characteristics of the exhibition as follows:

Ning Jizhe:

First, it has a distinct theme. The title of the exhibition is "Great Journey and Brilliant Achievements" and its theme is " opening and developing the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics and building a modern socialist country".

Ning Jizhe:

Second, it has a novel arrangement. Distinct from previous large-scale exhibitions featuring different sectors and parts, it is arranged in a chronological order like a Time Channel or Historical Corridor. In other words, the exhibition starts from 1949 and ends in 2019. The exhibition can be seen as annals of the PRC presented to the public in the form of an exhibition.

Ning Jizhe:

Third, it is rich in content. It consists of five sections, namely, Preface, Standing in the East (1949 to 1978),Reform and Opening-up (1978 to 2012), Rejuvenation (2012 to 2019), and Great Changes Before and Ahead. There are 1190 items and 150 exhibits featuring the "firsts" in the history of the PRC. A wall showcasing heroes and role models has been set up for each decade of development.

Ning Jizhe:

Fourth, it has multiple forms. The exhibition incorporates some 1700 historical photos, 180 videos and 650 objects, including the PRC's first Jiefang Brand vehicle, Hongqi Brand vehicle, Dongfeng Brand sedan car and tractor.There are nearly 100 models, over 20 interactive exhibits, and reproductions of 40 scenes from different periods of time, such as the scene of a wedding room in the 1950s against the backdrop of the promulgation of the PRC's first law—the Marriage Law. Other scenes are about the Daqing Oil Fields, the Red Flag Canal, fighting floods in 1998, the Wenchuan Earthquake in 2008, poverty alleviation, the rebuilding of shanty towns and so on. We welcome visitors to the exhibition and we will also have an online exhibition at the same time.
