Created for the upcoming G20 summit, a 1-minute promotional video — in which people, old and young, from every walk of life, sing a themed song together — has recently gone viral online.

This year, G20 summit will take place in China's eastern city of Hangzhou from September 4-5. State broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV) produced the video titled Like You, Together to present the best images of China to the world.

The filmmakers aimed to convey a fresh attitude to life, ideas, openness and inclusion. It shows groups of relatives, friends and strangers making up a big family beyond national borders, according to its producers, who were inspired by the G20 theme "Toward an Innovative, Invigorated, Interconnected and Inclusive World Economy." 

The G20 summit will bring China and the world closer together, say organizers. In the video, characters from different occupations express their yearning for life and hope for the future.
