A US exhibition on Yunnan province and the Flying Tigers provides a boost to cultural exchanges between China and the United States, and it helps people remember the days when US volunteers helped China fight the Japanese invaders, a senior official of the Chinese consulate general in New York said on Sunday.

Li Liyan, cultural counselor of the consulate general, said that by holding the exhibition, US citizens and Chinese alike can look back at that part of history and treasure their happy lives now.

The exhibition to mark the 70th anniversary of victory in the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression (1937-45) and World War II was organized by the Sino-American Aviation Heritage Foundation, the Yunnan Flying Tigers Research Institute and other groups. It has been to several US cities since July and opened in New York City's Chinatown on Sunday.
