Noting that 2018 and 2019 will be the years of cooperation and exchanges between the two countries at local levels, Xi said the events will surely boost local exchanges between China and Russia and help develop the popularity of the idea that the two sides share a long-standing friendship and seek common development and prosperity.
In 1964, Mackerras went to China for the first time. Over the past five decades, he has visited China over 60 times and has made tireless efforts to present a real China to Australia and the world based on his personal experience of China's development and progress, Xi said.
China also has dived into the sharing economy, with ride-sharing company Didi Chuxing buying out Uber's business in China and fast-growing Ofo starting to offer bike rentals in major cities across the United States.
In his message, Li noted that with the successful conclusion of the 22nd regular meeting between the heads of government of China and Russia in November, the two sides have reached crucial consensus on promoting all-around pragmatic cooperation and deepened the integration of interests.
"Xi praised us that we are still studying although we have retired, and he encouraged us to take good care of ourselves and enjoy life," Liu said. "He looked so easygoing. All of us were so excited."
The team, with eight members including two men, performs for other retirees in the nursing home every Tuesday morning and during festivals and holidays, Liu said.
不要简单地认为这些人只是为了博人眼球 ，一时心血来潮 ，他们有一定的文化传承和社会基础。在中华文化中有一个毒瘤 ，叫“汉奸文化” ，与以爱国主义为核心的中华主流文化如影相随 ，使中国人民在抵御外侮时 ，经常要侧着身子战斗。最明显的例子 ，就是在抗战期间 ，国内“皇协军”、“伪军”的数量几乎抵得上日本侵华部队。现在依然有些人 ，大言不惭地管自己叫做“带路党” ，他们要给谁带路？他们自我解释说 ，要给入侵者带路。这也太超出底线了吧！你对这个国家再有意见 ，也不至于对生于斯长于斯的国家捅刀子吧 ，你就不怕遭到子孙后代的唾骂？
