Weng Tiehui Attends National Day Reception by Consulate General of Ireland
The Consulate General of Ireland gave a reception in celebration of Ireland’s St. Patrick’s Day (National Day) on March 17. Weng Tiehui, vice-mayor of Shanghai and some 300 guests attended the event.
Weng Tiehui said that Shanghai and Ireland have close educational ties. The number of Shanghai students studying in Ireland is second to that of the EU countries only, and we would also like to see more Irish students to come to study in Shanghai.
Irish Consul General Austin Gormley said that the relations between Ireland and China have developed rapidly in recent years. Cork and Shanghai will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their sister-city relationship in May this year, and the two cities will further their exchange in culture, education and training of public servants. The Irish Consulate General is currently conducting two projects in an effort to make Ireland better known to the local people. One is the “Irish Literature Translation Award” that aims to introduce Irish contemporary literary works to the Chinese readers, and the other is the “Knowledge Contest on Irish Culture” for the middle school students, held in collaboration with Huangpu district.
