It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to official website of the Consulate General of Israel in Shanghai.
I am Eyal Propper, the Consul General of Israel in Shanghai and very happy to take office here. The special connection between the Jewish people and Shanghai is long lasting. The Chinese and the Jewish people are two of the oldest nations on earth. Our civilizations are thousands of years old. Each of our nations has a rich and fascinating history. We shall never forget the savior of 30,000 Jews in shanghai during World War II.
I have served more than seven years at the Israeli Embassy in Beijing. In 1992, following the establishment of the diplomatic relations between Israel and China, I was the first Academic and Press Officer, and in 2002 returned to China as Minister, Deputy Head of Mission and Head of the Political Bureau. China is my second home town.
This website is designed to serve Israelis and Chinese alike. Our website brings information, in three languages, covering a variety of issues, including: economy & trade, culture and history of Israel, bi-lateral ties etc. We hope the website will serve as a source of information, as well as a tool in promoting the development of the cooperation between the people of Israel and the citizens of Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Jiangxi and Anhui.
I hope you will like our website and find it interesting.
