October 1st : A glorious day for Chinese people
The Gran Meliá Hotel was the center of the diplomatic and social scene on October 1, with a cocktail party thrown in in celebration of China’s National Day.

In 1949, from September 21 - 30, the First Plenum of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) was held in Beijing, with the participation of various political parties, popular organizations, non-party democrats, and representatives from all walks of life. The CPPCC drew up a Common Program, which served as a provisional constitution. It elected a Central People’s Government Council, with Mao Zedong as Chairman, and appointed Chou En-lai Premier of the Government Administration Council and concurrently Minister of Foreign Affairs.
In October 1949, a grand ceremony inaugurating the People’s Republic of China was witnessed by 300,000 people in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square. That day, Chairman Mao Zedong solemnly proclaimed the formal establishment of the People’s Republic of China.
The guests at the reception included ambassadors from diplomatic missions in Venezuela, as well as leading journalists, socialites, politicians and businessmen, who share economic interests with this powerful nation. Everyone enjoyed the delicious typical food; and this was certainly the perfect occasion to strengthen bonds between China and Venezuela in a pleasant and friendly environment.
