50 years ago on April 10, the U.S. table tennis delegation paid a historic visit to Beijing, a first step to restarting the diplomatic relations that had been cut-off for two decades hitherto. Chinese table tennis players reciprocated by visiting the America the year after. The exchanges between the Chinese and American table tennis players formed the basis of what would later be known as ping-pong diplomacy. It marked the re-establishment of suspended China-U.S. relations.
To celebrate this important relationship, a commemorative celebration of this historic event will be held on April 24, 2021 (Saturday) 9am HKT. The event itself will take place in Beijing. Invited guests are welcome to join via web conference.
