Han Zheng meets Belgian crown prince, Missouri governor

Shanghai Mayor Han Zheng met Belgian Crown Prince Philippe and his delegation in the VIP Hall of the Municipal Building on October 28 and extended hearty welcome to the prince on behalf of Shanghai people.

Han said Shanghai has developed substantial cooperation with major ports in Belgium in recent years. As this year marks the 40th anniversary of the Sino-Belgian diplomatic ties, the prince’s visit is bound to boost friendship between the two nations and the cooperation between Shanghai and Belgian cities.

Prince Philippe said there are many Belgian enterprises in Shanghai and the Expo 2010 strengthened the bilateral cooperation in environment protection, which he believed would be a great success.

In a separate meeting on October 28 with Jay Nixon, the governor of Missouri of the United States, Han said Shanghai has close cooperation with the United States in trade, science and technology, education and culture. Many American enterprises have invested in Shanghai and are growing well.

The mayor said Nixon’s visit would deepen Shanghai’s friendship with the state of Missouri and stimulate bilateral cooperation.

Nixon said the state of Missouri attaches great importance to its ties with Shanghai. Both sides are now cooperating in trade and education projects. He hoped this cooperation will expand into more fields.
