Through six years of tireless efforts, Tajik apricot trees in Beijing University of Agriculture, a token of friendship between China and Tajikistan, began to bear fruits. On June 27 Sino-Tajik friendship apricots tasting ceremony was held in Beijing University of Agriculture (BUA).

In March 2006, Rashid Alimov, Tajik Ambassador to China took 125 apricot seedlings to China and presented them to BUA. From then the apricot trees have become a unique and beautiful landscape of BUA. Under the good care of teachers and students of BUA, the apricot trees blossomed and began to bear fruits this year.

Six years ago, many people doubted whether the exotic apricot trees can survive in China. But with joint efforts, talent and skill, these 125 fragile seedlings of apricot from Tajikistan deeply rooted and began to bear fruits in China. These apricots are the golden fruits of the Sino-Tajik friendship and mark a new page of Sino-Tajik cooperation, said fondly the Ambassador Rashid Alimov.

These apricot trees witness the Sino-Tajik friendship. BUA will make every effort to spread these Tajik apricots in China, converting these fruits into a medium to promote the Sino-Tajik friendship as well as a characteristic product of BUA, said Du Xiaolin, Deputy Rector and Secretary of CPC Committee of BUA.

In every spring starting from 2009, BUA celebrates a poetry recital in Sino-Tajik friendship apricot woods where Chinese and foreign guests get together to enjoy the beautiful apricot flowers, recite poems and deepen the friendship.
