|Consul General in Shanghai briefed on airport development|
On 24 August, Amikan Levy, Israel’s Consul General in Shanghai, had a fruitful meeting with Jinyi Ming, President of the Shanghai Airport Group.
Also in attendance were Nadav Zysblat, Deputy Consul General; Henry Xu, Director of the Department of Governmental & Economic Affairs, and representatives from El Al Israel airlines.
Mr Jin briefed Consul General Levy about the operation of Shanghai’s airports, saying that the Shanghai Airport Group covered both Pudong and Hongqiao airports. Pudong airport ranked in the top ten in passenger handling and number three in cargo handling for the past nine consecutive years. There was therefore heavy pressure to maintain and improve standards of punctuality and safety.
Consul Levy said that more and more Chinese understood Israel was not only a high-tech country but also had extensive tourism resources and a fascinating culture, and was also very safe. As a result, Israel was attracting more and more Chinese tourists and the market was expanding rapidly. He said he was looking forward to seeing a direct fight from Shanghai to Tel Aviv in the near future.Please login or register to see the full article
