Welcome by the Consul General


Olivier Zehnder, Consul General of Switzerland in Shanghai

Dear Visitor,

I wish you a warm welcome to the website of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Shanghai!

It is a privilege to serve you as Consul General of Switzerland here in Shanghai, when the bilateral relations between Switzerland and China are at their best and continue their ascent. Business, trade, innovation, culture and education exchanges between Switzerland and the Yangtze-Delta Region are remarkably fruitful and I am honored to be a direct witness of the region’s exceptional dynamism.

Uniting under one roof the Swiss Business Hub, swissnex China and Pro Helvetia, the Consulate General of Switzerland operates as a focal point in promoting Sino-Swiss relations. Our main goals are to represent the interests of Switzerland and to provide a full range of services to the Swiss community in Shanghai as well as in the provinces of Anhui, Jiangsu and Zhejiang.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you require any assistance or need any information, or if you wish to know more about our country. To stay informed about our tasks and activities don’t forget to subscribe to our cultural newsletter and bi-annual newsletter “Grüezi Shanghai”, and to follow us on our social media channels. We look forward to staying in touch with you and also to meeting you in person during the numerous events of the Swiss community taking place in Shanghai.

Yours sincerely,

Olivier Zehnder
Consul General
