Various Chinese kung fu (martial arts) performances were staged here Sunday evening to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

Chinese and Rwandan performers, including adults and children, entertained a full house of about 500 spectators with various kung fu performances such as tai chi, wing chun, qigong and sanda.

Besides, teachers and students from Confucius Institute at the University of Rwanda sang Chinese and Rwandan songs during the event. Rwandan traditional dance and instruments were also showcased.

The event was co-organized by Rwanda Kung-fu Wushu Federation (RKWF) and the Chinese Embassy in Rwanda.

Chinese Ambassador to Rwanda Rao Hongwei said at the event that he hopes kung fu will help boost cultural exchanges and friendships between China and the international community, including Rwanda.

"Exchanges, integration and mutual learning based on equality are the only way to ensure the prosperity of all nations and a better future of the whole world," he said.
