Chinese president Xi Jinping offered several domestic movies and TV dramas as state gifts to Argentine officials during his visit to Latin America. The DVDs included popular Chinese TV series such as "Beijing Youth" and the film Love is Not Blind. Beijing Youth tells the story of four youths who work hard to fulfill their dreams and to pursue love in Beijing. "Love is Not Blind" depicts the value of love among Chinese youth by telling the story of a girl recovering from lovelorn grief. Both of the two stories show how young people cope with life's difficulties in a positive way.
Teng Huatao, the director of the film Love is Not Blind, said that she was delighted that her film had been chosen as a state gift. "The film reflects contemporary China and the life of Chinese youth."
Today's state gifts are no longer limited to long-standing traditional items such as porcelain and silk. Xi and his wife Peng Liyuan always offer gifts during their state visits abroad, and these gifts not only reflect the sincerity of China towards its friends, but also highlight the character and development of modern China.
