Next week will mark the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Ireland and the People's Republic of China. The visit to Ireland next week of Liu Yunshan, Member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China's (CPC) Central Committee, would provide both governments with an opportunity to reflect on more than three decades of friendship and what can be done to ensure further enhancement and development of the fruitful ties between our countries.

Having recently begun my tenure as China's 12th Ambassador to Ireland, I am especially pleased to note that the China-Ireland relationship has never been better and that we have plenty of reasons to rejoice in the vast potential in the widening contacts, exchanges and co-operation between our nations.
