The book, which was published by Blossom Press under CIPG, includes the author's latest collection of Chinese poems and essays in what he called "a dedication to all those who love, share and celebrate language and culture."

During the event, John McKinnon, New Zealand's ambassador to China, recognized Mr. Huo's contribution to China-New Zealand cultural exchange and the role he played in bringing the two cultures together.

"Huo's book serves an example for cultural exchange and cooperation between China and New Zealand," said Fang Zhenghui, vice president of CIPG. "I hope more and more overseas Chinese, like Mr. Huo, can promote Chinese culture to the outside world."

Andrew Little, leader of the New Zealand Labour Party, and Nigel Haworth, Chairman of the party, also recognized Mr. Huo's contribution to China-New Zealand relations and New Zealand Chinese Language Week.

"The language week is an initiative to increase Chinese language learning in New Zealand, which is celebrated every September and coincides with China's Mid-autumn Day," said Ambassador McKinnon.

As a testament to the long history of people to people relations, "Blue Sky, White Clouds" plays a role in bridging the cultural and linguistic gap between China and New Zealand, according to Ambassador McKinnon.
