These aspects are difficult but not impossible incorporating "cultural and scientific development and modernization of the world today".

To conclude his presentation, Buitrago, who also serves as chairman of the Organization for Colombo-Chinese Relations and CEO of China-expressed Center a reality based on Chinese reality: "The mystery of the existence of elderly living in the field testifies that family harmony and respect for the descendants constitute the secret formula that guarantees them happily spend old age".
