An Analysis of Comprehensive Strategic Partnership” and “China, Latin America and The Geopolitics of the New Silk Road”.Now he has more first-hand, real and rich observations about China.He told reporters that under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, The country has grown into a major world power, achieved remarkable prosperity and lifted nearly 800 million people out of poverty, “which has undoubtedly had an impact on the entire world and transmitted the concept of seeking happiness for the people.”Photo: The first complete Chinese translation of the Communist Manifesto, translated by Chen Wangdao, is on display at a memorial hall of the Communist Party of China.In June last year, Niu Wangdao visited the Grand Memorial Hall of the Communist Party of China in Shanghai, where the first Chinese version of the Communist Manifesto is kept.It reminded him of the Argentine saying, “The happiness of the people is the wealth of the nation.””That’s what’s happening in China today.””He said at the time.Niu Wangdao, Argentina’s ambassador to China, takes a selfie with Argentine President Cristina Fernandez at the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games in Beijing, Capital of China, Feb. 4, 2018.As a winter sports fan, Niu Wangdao has been following the Beijing Winter Olympics.He has visited many winter Olympics venues, Olympic villages and supporting facilities. “China has made full preparations and the rich ‘Winter Olympics legacy’ will benefit the people,” he said.Photo: The opening ceremony of the 24th Winter Olympic Games was held at the National Stadium in Beijing, Capital of China, Feb. 4, 2018.This is the Argentine delegation entering the opening ceremony.Despite his tight schedule as ambassador, Niu Wangdao found time to take Chinese lessons and learn new vocabulary every day.”I really enjoy learning the language, and I think learning Chinese is crucial to understanding Chinese culture in depth.”He said.
