Welcome to the website of the Consulate General of the People's Republic of
in Mumbai! China
After the transmission of Buddhism from
India to China from 1st century, many Indian scholars and monks travelled to , such as Kumãrajîva( AC. 334-413), who travelled to China in AC.401 and translated the Buddhist texts written in Sanskrit into Chinese. The story of Monk Xuan Zang(AC.602-664),more popularly known as Huen Tsang in India, is well known both in India and China. He came to China to learn Buddhism. So did Faxian(AC.337-422), another Chinese monk who came to this country to learn Buddhism, even though he is more popularly known as Fa Hien in India . India
And following their footprints, I too came to this great neighboring country, with mission of further promoting friendship and cooperation between those two peoples.
Mumbai, the capital city of
Maharashtra, is located in the west coast line of India, and is well known world-wide for its important role as 's financial, commercial, cultural and trade centre. To the south of India Maharashtra is another state of Karnataka, which is also under our consular jurisdiction. And its capital city of Bengaluru(earlier Bangalore) is famous for IT industry and is therefore labeled as " ". Asian Silicon Vally
The relations between provinces of
China and two states of Maharashtra and Karnataka have been continuously strengthened through concrete exchanges and cooperation since diplomatic relations between India and were established in April, 1950. During 2013-2014, sister-city relations were also set up between China Chengdu and Bangalore, and between and Mumbai, respectively. Shanghai
Over the past years, more and more Chinese enterprises and companies have invested in
Maharashtra and Karnataka. I firmly believe that the enhancement of friendship and cooperation between local governments, enterprises and peoples of both countries will undoubtedly benefit their common development and also be advantageous to their peoples.
The Consulate General is ready to provide service and assistance to Chinese citizens and enterprises in the above two states, and of course to protect their legal rights and interests according to related laws and norms.
