Ceremony Held in Utah on Liaoning Province's Medical Supplies Donation

The medical supplies donated by Liaoning Province to the State of Utah arrived at the Salt Palace Convention Center, Salt Lake City on April 17. The Utah State Legislature held a special ceremony and joined a video conference with Liaoning officials to express appreciation for their donation. The ceremony was attended and addressed by Senate President Stuart Adams, Speaker Brad Wilson, Senator Curtis Bramble, Senator Jacob Anderegg, Representative Brad Daw, Principal Darrin Johnson of Cascade Elementary School, teacher and student representatives of Cascade’s Chinese Language Immersion Program, Executive Vice Chairman Sun Yi and Vice Chairwoman Kang Jie from the Standing Committee of Liaoning Provincial People’s Congress. Minister Xu Xueyuan of the Chinese Embassy also attended the video conference.

Some of the children’s masks in the supplies will be donated to the Cascade Elementary School. Principal Johnson, together with the teachers and students present, expressed thanks to China and shared their story of correspondence with President Xi Jinping earlier this year, as well as their support for China in combating the pandemic. The students said they wished to become ambassadors of U.S.-China friendship.

Liaoning Provincial People’s Congress and Utah State Legislature established sub-national legislature exchange and cooperation relationship in 2006, which is the first of such mechanisms between China and the U.S. The two sides have since enjoyed close cooperation in people-to-people exchanges, economy, trade, education and tourism.
