A message from Consul General Lise Nordgaard


I am very happy to have resumed the post as Norway’s new Consul General here in Shanghai. I am excited about the job – and look forward to working with the Norwegian businesses and entrepreneurs in Shanghai as well as in the provinces Anhui, Jiangxi, Jiangsu and Zhejiang.

I also look forward to working with the Chinese business community and learn more about the multitude of bilateral opportunities between Norway and China. Cooperation between the cultural and educational communities are also essential and prioritized areas to ensure solid bilateral opportunities between our two countries. As Consul General, I will strive to facilitate for useful and mutual beneficial meeting grounds for these communities.

It is also fantastic to be back in China. I worked at our Royal Norwegian Embassy in Beijing from 2010 to 2015. Previously I have also served in our Embassies in Moscow, Singapore and Yangon.

I am really looking forward to meeting Norwegians in Shanghai and in the surrounding provinces, as well as meeting our Chinese cooperation partners.

I wish everyone a great Spring Festival as we get ready to enter the year of the Ox.

Kind regards
Lise Nordgaard
