On Nov. 8, Vice Governor Zhang Guangjun met with Andrei DAPKIUNAS, the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Belarus and his delegation in Guangzhou and attended upon invitation the opening ceremony of Belarus Consulate General in Guangzhou.
At the meeting, Vice Governor Zhang Guangjun said that Guangdong attaches great importance to the exchanges and cooperation with Belarus and hoped that the China (Guangdong) Optoelectronic Technology Industrial Park Project in Great stone can become a model of friendly cooperation between China and Belarus.
At the ceremony, Zhang expressed that in recent years, local exchanges and cooperation between Guangdong and Belarus have become closer under the framework of good relations between China and Belarus.
