In his speech, Mr. Tang Guocai hailed that Mr. Tang Yu Lap is a patriot and an ambassador of China-India friendship and cultural exchanges. The beautiful natural and cultural landscape of mainland China and Hong Kong exhibited at this exhibition is the depiction of Mr. Tang Yu Lap's deep affection for the motherland. The construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area will provide a strong impetus and bright future for the sustainable development of Hong Kong in the new era.

Mr.Tang Guocai pointed out that this year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of New China and the 72nd anniversary of India's independence. Colonialism should have been scrapped off from history long time ago. Both China and India are victims of colonialism. At present, they are both in the important stage of national development and national rejuvenation. They should adhere to the spirit of independence and openness, work together in solidarity, and cultivate solid foundation of common interests and sound cultural exchange atmosphere.

Mr. Tang Yu Lap said that wherever he traveled all over the world, his favourite country was the motherland. As a witness to the contemporary development of Hong Kong, he deeply feels that Hong Kong's future and destiny are closely connected with the motherland. The Chairman of the India-China Friendship Association, Fernandez, said that China and India are the two fastest growing economies in the world today. External forces are reluctant to see the development and friendship between China and India, and use various means to create problems.

More than 200 people from all walks of life, including local politics, culture, education, commerce, media and consulates in Mumbai, attended the event. Artists were also invited to perform traditional Indian music.
