The complete poetry work of Agostinho Neto, the "Poet Major", was translated into Mandarin and presented last weekend in Beijing during the opening ceremony of the 8th edition of the Song Festival in Portuguese Language held in the Chinese capital.

The collection, which includes the books "Sacred Hope", "Impossible Renunciation" and "The Dawn", was translated and launched by an initiative of the Dr. António Agostinho Neto Foundation, in cooperation with the Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU) organizer of the festival.

During the launching ceremony, the António Agostinho Neto Foundation offered 700 copies of the collection to BFSU, at a ceremony held by the Angolan ambassador in China, João Salvador dos Santos Neto, who handed it over to the vice-rector of Yuan Jun University.
