Background: An economic and trade exhibition organised ??? People's Republic of China opened yesterday (Thursday, August ??? in Copenhagen, at the Bella Centre Hall. Showing more than 2,400 items of machinery, furniture, toys and ceramics, it aims at demonstrating contemporary standards of Chinese industrial production.
The exhibition was opened by Mr. Chou Tsu-Chien, Vice-Minister of the First Minister of Machine-Building of The People's Republic, who is on a week-long friendly visit to Denmark at the invitation of the Government. At a meeting with Mr. Chou, Denmark's Minister of Commerce, Industry and Shipping, Mr. Erling Jensen, said the exhibition, together with the Danish industrial exhibition held in Peking in March 1972, would enhance the mutual understanding and friendship between the Chinese and Danish Peoples.
SYNOPSIS: At the Bella Centre Hall in Copenhagen, an economic and trade exhibition of The People's Republic of China was opened this week.
It was set up by a twenty-six man delegation and the formal opening was conducted by Mr. Chou Tsu-Chien, Vice-Minister of the First Ministry of Machine-Building of The People's Republic. The exhibits range from toys and sporting equipment to elaborate ceramics and intricate machinery -- all made in The Chinese People's Republic -- upholding the reputation of the term "china" as the very best in ceramics.
These bowls and vases are modern facsimiles of Tang-dynasty works of art.
Altogether, the exhibition is displaying two thousand four hundred objects.
Its major aim is to demonstrate contemporary standards of Chinese industrial production -- such as petroleum products of aviation and this large printing machine.
There is a special section on Chinese methods in medicine. It shows a combination of the most sophisticated Western surgical techniques and the traditional Chinese skills of acupuncture.
The Chinese shipbuilding industry is also on display -- though, of course, only small models and engine-parts can be shown.
