On the opening ceremony, the British Consulate Consul General, Mrs El Beleidi, expressed her affection for Chongqing with elegant English.

"Chongqing continues to surprise me.

It is such a pleasure
to have the opportunity to deepen my
understanding of this
great municipality.

I particularly like the hidden treasures
in the municipality's grand, old buildings,
which are tucked away
among the shiny new ones.

I enjoy seeing Chongqing people
in their daily lives:
The bang-bang men (porters) appear
in the crowd of people
who are on their way to the workplaces;
the ladies who quietly and consistently
keep the streets clean;
and the daily dog walkers……

The people in this city
really offer the "spice" of life here! ”
