On October 11, 2010, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs held the Photos and Documents Exhibition in Celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Ties between China and Canada in Beijing. Vice Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai attended the opening ceremony and delivered a speech. The opening ceremony was presided over by Chief Archivist Guo Chongli of the Bureau of Archives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Former Chinese diplomatic envoys to Canada, veteran diplomats who participated in the establishment of diplomatic relations between Canada and China, Minister Jeff Nankivell of the Canadian Embassy in China and, other officials attended the opening ceremony and visited the exhibition.

Cui pointed out that the exhibition is an important part of the program in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Canada. "The photos and documents on display here today record the accomplishments of China and Canada in the political, economic, cultural and other fields over the past 4 decades and epitomize the friendly exchanges between the two peoples. I hope that both sides take this opportunity to work together to constantly push the bilateral strategic partnership forward and write a new chapter for China-Canada relations."

Jeff Nankivell said that a series of mutual visits and celebrations on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations will help the two sides review the decades of friendship and further advance bilateral relations in all fields. He believed that the bilateral relationship will become even closer.

China and Canada established diplomatic relations on October 13, 1970. The exhibition is an important part of the exchange activities based on the consensus of the two foreign ministries to conduct cooperation in the field of archives. The exhibition will exhibit the communiqué for the establishment of diplomatic relations and important bilateral agreements, in particular the 60-plus precious historical documents and pictures that reflected the exchange of visits between leaders and other important bilateral events. The exhibition aims at displaying the growth path of bilateral relations and important accomplishments of bilateral relations over the past 40 years.
