Hao Hao and Xing Hue are two Giant Pandas, living in Pairi Daiza Wildlife Park in Belgium. Both pandas are on loan from China. On 22nd of June 2016, the 7-year-old Hao Hao gave birth to a 171-gram male cub.
The idea of pandas as gifts is known as 'panda diplomacy' and it has a long tradition in China. Panda diplomacy describes how the Chinese authorities let chosen governments keep pandas as a mark of respect between their countries. In the 1980s China moved away from 'gifting pandas' to countries, and instead started to loan them out.
