An exhibition of photos and books dubbed Beautiful China was unveiled in Queenstown on May 25 aimed at providing diversified perspectives for New Zealand readers.

The exhibition launched by visiting Chinese Vice Minister of State Council Information Office Guo Weimin, put together about 70 photos and 400 books to its audience, showcasing different aspects of progress of China's politics, culture, literature in recent years.

The book Xi Jinping: the Governance of China, which outlines the full political ideas of the Chinese top leadership, was on the center stage of the event.

Guo told his audience that the book would help better understand the Communist Party of China's new concepts, ideas and strategies in governance, so as to have a clear vision of directions of China's future reforms and assumption of relationship between China and the world.

The exhibition also brought works of Nobel Prize winner Chinese novelist Mo Yan, the prominent science fiction writer Liu Cixin and winner of 2016 Hans Christian Andersen award for children's literature Cao Wenxuan.

"We are very young compared to China, and we have a lot to learn about preserving our heritage and honoring our history,"Mayor of Queenstown Vanessa van Uden said, adding that the exhibition offers another opportunity for people in Queenstown to learn more about China.

The exhibition will later move onto Auckland, the most populous city of the country hosting some 1.5 million people, one third of the country's population, where it is expected to receive more audience.
