Qiu Xiaoqi, China's special representative on Latin American affairs, remarked, "This exhibition grants Chongqing's residents a chance to marvel at the Amazon Rainforest's allure. It also underscores the Peruvian government's and its citizens' sincere dedication to environmental conservation."

Having established diplomatic ties with New China early on, Peru, like China, treasures its pristine "green waters" and "blue mountains," signifying their mutual emphasis on ecological preservation.

Qiu Xiaoqi added, "China is eager to share its insights on ecological sustainability with the global community, including Peru. Together, we can carve out a pathway to green, low-carbon progress and envision a clean and beautiful world."

The photos in this exhibition showcase the unique charm of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. 

Chen Yuanchun, Deputy Director of the Standing Committee of the People's Congress of Chongqing Municipality, introduced the exhibition, saying, "The displayed works offer a glimpse into the mesmerizing Peruvian Amazon Rainforest, portraying not only its rich biodiversity and scenic grandeur but also its age-old cultural resonance. Viewers are drawn into the profound narratives behind each image, encapsulating the region's lifestyle, heritage, and traditions."

Throughout the year, Chongqing and Peru have fostered a robust bond, emphasizing multi-faceted exchanges and cooperative ventures across varied sectors.

Moving forward, Chongqing aspires to bolster cultural interchanges and shared learning experiences with Peru. The city aims to construct conduits for tangible cooperation across diverse domains such as culture, education, economics, and technology by amplifying their mutual strengths, especially in trade. This paves the way for a comprehensive cultural, educational, economic, and technological partnership between Chongqing and Peru.

Visitors to the exhibition can feast their eyes on captivating snapshots of Peru's natural wonders like the Gocta Waterfall, the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve's sunsets, diverse plant and animal life, the Andean rock rooster, Lake Yanacocha, and the Amazon tree boa.

Modern urban vistas, locomotives, and indigenous crafts from the San Francisco communities also grace the exhibition.

Moreover, the display features the ancient stone circular house site, an emblem of the Chachapoyas culture dating back to the 6th century. This site parallels the ancient stone dwellings discovered in Zhongxian County, Chongqing, drawing an intriguing link between China and Peru across eons.
