Update: 2018-10-29     Source: newsgd.com

On October 26, the Consulate General of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in Guangzhou was formally established at Room 801 #5 International Financial Center of Guangzhou (West Zhujiang Street, Tianhe District). The office will cover Guangdong, Fujian, Hainan, Jiangxi Provinces as well as the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

It is the third Venezuelan Consulate to be established in China, after the first two in Hong Kong and Shanghai.

Héctor Rodríguez, Governor of Miranda, said the Consulate General of Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in Guangzhou will start a new chapter to strengthen relationship between China and Venezuela. “Almost every Chinese living in Venezuela comes from Guangdong. I believe the new consulate general in Guangzhou will push forward economic, social and cultural cooperations, and eventually benefit people of both countries,” he said.

According to Lin Ji, Deputy Secretary of Guangdong Province, subnational exchanges and cooperation between Guangdong and Venezuela are continuously growing. The trade volume between two places reached RMB 1.94 billion in 2017, increasing by 4.4 per cent.

“We are very pleased to have Venezuela as a new member of the Consular Corps in Guangzhou, and look forward to the Consulate serving as an important bridge in our cooperation in such areas as economy and trade, energy, agriculture, culture, tourism and people to people exchanges,” said Lin.

The opening ceremony was attended by representatives from both Venezuelan and Guangdong governments, consulates in Guangzhou, foreign chambers of commerce as well as people that are living or having their businesses in Venezuela.
