The Chinese embassy in Washington held a farewell reception last week in honor of Ambassador Zhang Yesui and Madame Chen Naiqing. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, Under Secretary of State Patrick Kennedy, Under Secretary of Agriculture Catherine Woteki and Chief of Protocol of the US Capricia Marshall joined former US ambassadors to China, heads of foreign missions in the US and more than 300 US business people, think tanks, media agencies and the Chinese community. Zhang reviewed his experience in the past three years and thanked colleagues and people from all walks of life in the US for their efforts in promoting China-US relations. Zhang said he is convinced that with joint efforts, China and the United States can embark on a new model of state-to-state relations that features peaceful coexistence and cooperation.

After a decade in New York immersing himself in photographical theory and practice, eventually doing work for notable clients such as Sony, Minolta and Kodak, Nanjing-based photographer Zhao Hui says he has "made an effort to show the world a different view of China than is seen on television or in the news".

That effort is on display in Beijing at a "People to People" photo exhibition from March 1 at the capital's Meilidao International Art Institution.

The show, organized by the European Union delegation in China, features comparative portraits of daily life in both China and the West, and is on until March 26. Invited VIPs for the opening include Minister Wang Chen from the State Council Information office.

US Ambassador to China Gary Locke joined Germany's Ambassador Michael Schaefer and Canada's Ambassador Guy Saint-Jacques at a moot-court event at Beijing's Renmin University last week. Locke told the participating young lawyers that, "Like many of you I got my start as a lawyer working for four years as a criminal prosecutor in my hometown of Seattle, Washington, and I prosecuted people charged with burglary, robbery, drug trafficking, and murder.

"I share your passion and commitment to the rule of law as well as your support for this prestigious competition that brings law students from all across China to face some of the most challenging and exciting legal issues facing our world today."
