On December 3rd 2005, President Hu Jintao received performers and said: “On behalf of the Central Committee of the Party and the State Council, I expressed my heartfelt wishes to performers and staff of CDPPAT as well as all disabled people and working staff for disabled people in China.
CDPPAT had an 18-year extraordinary experience. You affected all the audience with your stirring and superb performances, amazing artistic creativity and persistent and indomitable spirits. You won honors for our country and our people. Our country and our people thank you all. I Hope that you all make persistent efforts and keep forging ahead to create more art treasures.
Considering you as the example with the spirit of self-respect, self-confidence, self-improvement and self-support, I hope that the disabled people in China contribute themselves to the process of building an overall well-to-do society, strive to realize their value of life and create better life ceaselessly.”
On September 11, 2008, President Hu Jintao and all the members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee as well as IPC President Sir Philip Craven and IOC Honorary President Juan Antonio Samaranch watched our shows.
