On February 6, Vice Governor Xu Ruisheng was invited to attend the National Day reception hosted by the Iranian Consulate General in Guangzhou.
Xu Ruisheng first gave holiday greetings and wishes to all Iranian friends who work and live in Guangdong. He said that the friendship between the Chinese and Iranian peoples has become an important driving force for the development of Sino-Iranian friendly relations. In recent years, exchanges and cooperation between Guangdong and Iran have continued to develop. Guangdong has signed a memorandum of friendly exchanges and cooperation with Iran's Hormuzgan Province, Isfahan Province and Fars Province. It is hoped that the two sides will work together to promote the early establishment of friendly relations between the provinces. Xu Ruisheng said that Guangdong is now actively implementing the new development concept and welcoming and expanding international exchanges and cooperation with a more open attitude. Guangdong hopes to strengthen exchanges and cooperation with Iran in various aspects such as culture, education, tourism and sports, and promote the further development of the traditional friendship between the two peoples.
Khalil Shirgholami said that as the Iranian Consulate General in Guangzhou he will continue to promote exchanges between Iran and Guangdong and explore more opportunities for cooperation in the fields of economy, culture, science and technology, tourism and academics.
