I'm really grateful for the G20 giving me an opportunity to come to Hangzhou, this paradise on earth.

That's so true, right? That's why they say "the heavens above are matched in beauty with Suzhou and Hangzhou below". The beauty of Hangzhou is not overblown! Ah, this is your second visit to Hangzhou? Then when was your first visit? When was that? Was is very different?

Uh, you're right. Hangzhou is extremely beautiful. The first time I came I didn't want to leave. I remember my deepest impression being of the ten historic sites around the West Lake. Now that I think about it, it must have been over ten years ago. Now Hangzhou is developing very quickly, and the changes are really dramatic.
