Consul General Zhang Ping, recently appointed to Los Angeles, was hosted by the LAGSCA Board of Directors and Corporate Sponsors at a luncheon on January 22, 2018. The venue for the event was the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills. Consul Zhang gave the group an informal briefing on current events in China and on China – US relations. A lively discussion followed and included a pledge by the Consul General to assist the association in any way to help it promote better relations and exchange between Guangzhou and Los Angeles and between China and the United States.
Consul General Zhang’s CV contains a number of appointments at China embassies around the world, in Australia, The USA, Fiji and now in Los Angeles. He has a long and successful career serving within the Chinese Foreign Ministry. We consider ourselves fortunate to have such a high-ranking and influential government official leading the Consulate General in Los Angeles.
