BOAO, April 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Participants in the Asian Economic forum held in Boao a town next to the eastern coastal city of Qionghai in Hainan Province, have attended a gala ceremony of opening an exhibition of photographs made by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
Throughout this year the exhibition of Dmitry Medvedev's photographs will be demonstrated in the biggest universities of China and at other big international exhibitions in China.
The opening of the exhibition on the sidelines of the Boao economic forum proves that the Russo-Chinese relations are on a high level, Russian Vice-premier Arkady Dvorkovich told the opening ceremony. “The prime minister is fond of photography, but he does not have enough spare time for that. Dmitry Medvedev makes many business trips, and he takes snapshots whenever he has a minute to spare - from a window of his car, his residence or even from board a plane,” Dvorkovich said.
On display are 19 photographs which Dmitry Medvedev made in Russia and abroad. Arkady Dvorkovich singled out the photographs made during Medvedev's official visit to China last October.
The idea of opening the exhibition was first suggested after Dmitry Medvedev had demonstrated his photographs to students of Science and Technology University in Haifa - a home city of Premier of the Chinese State Council Li Keqiang. Later, the photographs were sent to several publishers in China at the request of the Association of Photographers of China, Dvorkovich said.
