On January 8, when the Chinese Lunar New Year was approaching, the Chengdu Association for the Promotion of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation (CAFTEC) and the Lao China Economic and Trade Promotion Association (LCETPA) went to the Pensena family to visit Mr. Samano Pensena (former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Laos) Guining Benshena's second son), sent him condolences during the Spring Festival, wishing him and his family a happy new year, good health, and a happy family! At the same time, he solemnly handed over a calligraphy work of 'Chinese and Old Love' by Mr. Li Shurong, a well-known calligrapher in Chengdu.


Just as the work says 'to travel thousands of miles in every mountain, bridge to five continents by water', with the joint efforts of the people of China and Laos, the China-Laos railway will be officially opened to traffic in December 2021. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Pensena family for their contributions to the friendship between China and Laos. He also said that in the future work, the promotion will continue to uphold the spirit of the predecessors, not forget the original aspiration, live up to the youth, and make unremitting efforts to build a solid and unbreakable community with a shared future for China and the old!
