The seawater near the Chigua Reef of Nansha Islands is rich in fishery resources.
To China's permanent representative to the UN, Liu Jieyi, every photo on display tells a wonderful story about China, its traditions, and most importantly its recent progress in balancing economic development with nature.
'The photos do show Chinese history and the way of thinking that created its glorious history, but there is also evidence of the Chinese Dream that we're pursuing today: to build a beautiful China, which is in line with the world's progress,' Liu said at the opening ceremony of the exhibition on Wednesday.
Michael Adlerstein, assistant secretary general of the UN, said as an architect, he was impressed by China's ancient architecture, and more.
