Consuls general and deputy consuls general of 27 countries in Shanghai were invited to visit Shanghai People's Congress on Wednesday afternoon to learn about the nation's people's congress political system and how the city's legislative organ works.

They had a talk with Yin Yicui, director of the standing committee of the Shanghai People's Congress, and then were taken around the congress hall where the standing committee members had their meetings and votes. 

The visit ended with a round table discussion hosted by Sha Hailin, a standing committee official who used to be a diplomat to Ireland.

The consuls general to Shanghai serve as important bridges and bonds between Shanghai and their countries, enterprises, societies and citizens, said Yin.

Luc René Decker, Consul General of Luxembourg in Shanghai, said they are very interested in exchanging more with the people's congress about the environment for foreign companies and foreigners in Shanghai, and they appreciate such a chance for face-to-face communication and seek further cooperation.
