DG & Israeli Sister City Planted the Tree of Friendship

The Dongguan-Holon City Friendship Tree Planting and Children’s Seesaw Donation Ceremony was held at the Dongguan Botanical Garden on September 21.

Many departments attended the event, including the leaders of the Municipal Foreign Affairs Bureau and Urban Management Bureau. At the event site, both parties jointly cultivated soil and watered the olive trees symbolizing peace and friendship.

Consul General Peleg Lewi said the olive trees represent peace and hope in Jewish culture and hopes to deepen exchanges and cooperation between the two regions through this friendship tree-planting event. Vice Mayor Luo Huanghao elaborated that this event will further demonstrate and promote the friendly relations between the two places and allow Dongguan and Israel to strengthen exchanges and cooperation in various fields.

The Consulate General of Israel in Guangzhou donated three seesaws to Dongguan in the name of Holon, the city of children. Children from the two regions presented the Hippeastrum to the guests, an Israeli flower cultivated in Dongguan.
