The year 2017 marks the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Mexico. The photo exhibition is hosted by Shanghai Metro and the Consulate General of Mexico in Shanghai, and supported by Shanghai People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (SPAFFC).

The Acting Consulate General of Mexico in Shanghai, Juan Alberro stated at the opening ceremony on June 30, 2017 that China and Mexico are far apart geographically but closely linked emotionally, hoping that the photo show becomes a new bridge promoting friendly exchanges between our two countries.
