Visit by Chinese Delegation.

Before proceeding further this morning, I feel sure the House would wish to join with me in extending a warm welcome to a distinguished visitor, Duo Ji Cai Rang, the Minister of Civil Affairs of the People's Republic of China. I wish your Excellency, and your entourage well in your endeavours and trust that your stay with us will be most fruitful and happy. On behalf of Dáil Éireann, I extend to you a hearty céad míle fáilte, a hundred thousand welcomes.
