The Shanghai Communique, the first joint communiqué issued by China and the United States, established the principles to be followed in the development of bilateral relations, especially the One China principle. It has become the political foundation for the normalization of China-US relations and the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Renowned Chinese and American art groups and artists performed the classic musical works of the two countries. According to preliminary statistics, nearly 600,000 online viewers watched the concert.
