Israel’s Consulate General in Shanghai was officially opened in the Chinese commercial and business capital Monday, when the Foreign Ministry’s Moshe Ram presented his credentials as Consul General to a representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

The Shanghai representation is the first official Israeli office in China apart from the embassy in Beijing.

Israel and China established diplomatic relations in January 1992.
