Kinas ambassadør i Danmark Xie Hangsheng
Den kinesiske ambassadør i Danmark Xie Hangsheng citerede et digt, han har skrevet til lejligheden.
“Allow me to give you, the beloved Little Mermaid, my best wishes.
Here you are again at the tranquil harbor of Zealand embraced by the sea!
Sitting silently here as if you had never left,
Only because you are more than the daughter of the Baltic sea.
Your trip to Shanghai is one to a brand new world,
That makes you a new legend for both Denmark and China,
Connecting the West with the East.”
THE LITTLE MERMAID BELONGS TO ALL PEOPLE *)
