Consul General Ma Zhanwu Meets Yunnan Delegation

Mr. Ma Zhanwu, Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in Kolkata, met with the delegation of Yunnan Provincial Government led by Mr. Gao Shuxun, Adviser to the Provincial Government cum Director of China-South Asia Expo Executive Committee, at his residence on 27 April 2018.

Mr. Ma extended his warm welcome to the visiting delegation from Yunnan, and stated that Yunnan has contributed significantly to exchanges and cooperation between China and Eastern India, and China-South Asia Expo is playing an increasingly important role in the bilateral economic and trade interactions, with its growing reputation among the Indian business community. As the ties between China and Eastern India are witnessing more progress in the new era of the bilateral relationship, the Chinese Consulate in Kolkata will step up its effort to publicize the Expo, and work for further development of the relations between Yunnan Province and Eastern India. He also expressed his appreciation of the support by Yunnan Province to the Consulate.

Mr. Gao briefed Mr. Ma on the preparation of China-South Asia Expo 2018, which is scheduled to be held in Kunming, Yunnan from 14 to 20 June 2018, saying that the exhibition areas will increase to 190 thousand square meters, making it one of the few leading expos in China. And India will send the largest number of companies to the Expo this year, and their growth rate is also the highest. The positive attitude of the Indian businesses has given him more confidence in the prospects of the mutually beneficial cooperation between Yunnan and India. He also indicated that China-South Asia Business Forum will be held during the forth-coming Expo.

Mr. Gao thanked the Chinese embassy and consulates in India for their support to Yunnan and the Expo, and said Yunnan Province will work closely with them on promoting the exchanges and cooperation between the two countries.

The two sides also exchanged views on interactions between Yunnan and West Bengal.

Mr. Cai Zhifeng, Deputy Consul General, and Ms. Li Suyun, Consul, were among those present.
