The winners of the 5th Xiaoxiang Friendship Award and their families together with the leaders from the Hunan Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs (HAFEA) and the Forestry Department of Hunan Province, planted the trees despite the rain on the afternoon of Sept. 29. These trees standing for “peace, friendship and bless” are planted to express their active support to building a greener Hunan and wish for protecting the environment. It is one of the series activities organized by the HAFEA for foreign experts in Hunan to express their love to and concern for Hunan.
