President Xi Jinping's upcoming state visit to Brazil will further draw together the two countries and peoples, expand mutually beneficial and friendly cooperation between the two countries and lay a solid foundation for the development of bilateral ties in the next 40 years and beyond.

Brazilian sociologist Gilberto Freyre once described Brazil as "tropical China". He said that despite their geographical distance, China and Brazil have a long history of friendly exchanges, the two peoples' feelings are naturally close, and Chinese culture and Eastern values have deeply enriched Brazilian society.

As the Chinese ambassador to Brazil for more than two years now, I have deeply felt the richness of friendly exchanges between these two big developing countries and the great momentum in the pursuit of common development.
