In 1978, the closing of the third Plenary Session of the 11th CPC Central Committee marked the beginning of China's historic journey of reform and opening up.


The year 2018 marks at the 40th anniversary of China's reform and opening up.


Over the bygone 40 years, China has undergone earth-shaking changes.  It is reform and opening up that has given life and prosperity to China that has turned China from the black-and-white TVs into smart homes, from BP machines into smart phones, from food stamps into mobile payments, from green trains into high-speed trains, etc,.

Among them are cultivators witnessing the great changes happened to China, as well as front runners who are catching up.  They have been actively supporting and participating in the construction and development of the capital with a determined exploration and a pioneering spirit, apparently, they prevail in whatever challenges that may lie ahead and create extraordinary achievements . Working tirelessly and being advanced with the times, they have written the story of the development and progress of contemporary China with unprecedented diligence, courage and wisdom.  



Although tremendous and significant changes have been made over the last four decades, unwavering commitments shall continue making to the practice of patriotism.


To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up, the live broadcast series “My Heart of China” was created, which was jointly directed by the Beijing Municipal People's Government Office of Overseas Chinese Affairs , Beijing Overseas Chinese Merchants Association and Beijing time.

Beijing Time User8641: After watching the video, I just learned that there are so much cultural heritage and red sandalwood carving arts in China Red Sandalwood Museum, more importantly, it makes up for the regret of losing the old Beijing city gates and walls. I will definitely grab a time to visit the museum. Chair-lady Chan has worked tirelessly and spent a fortune on inheriting and spreading the traditional culture, which deserves every Chinese to learn. I believe that the state and the government should make more efforts to publicize their great achievements and make beneficial policies. I sincerely like this, Madam Chan and Mr. Chiu, you are the role model for every Chinese descendant.      


Sophie: It is indeed a magnificent project with precious material,  refined craftsmanship, as well as day and night efforts. In addition to being shocked, I was full of admiration. The patriotism and deep attachment to home of the elder generation were thoroughly reflected by Chair-lady Chan. I would pay tribute to Madam Chan, wish her a healthy and happy life.
