Two giant pandas have made their public debut in Spain. The Madrid Zoo held a special ceremony for the two guests from China. Queen Sofia of Spain attended the ceremony.

7-year-old "Bing Xing" and 4-year old "Hua Zui Ba" will stay in Spain for 10 years. The zoo has arranged comfortable dens for their guests. They are equipped with air-conditioners and humidifiers, as well as an outdoor recreation area. The pair took a chartered flight from their home in Chengdu to Madrid two weeks ago.

In June, China and Spain launched a joint program for the protection of the endangered species during a visit by Spanish King Juan Carlos the First.
