It is a matter of great satisfaction to witness that the Indian community in and around Shanghai, under the umbrella of Indian Association-Shanghai is working as an important pillar of support, cooperation & exchange of ideas among fellow Indians; and as a strong link with the Diaspora. Indian Association also plays an important role in promotion and propagation of Indian values and acts as a bridge towards strengthening people-to-people contact.
Special efforts made towards bringing Indian ethos, value systems, appreciation for composite culture, respect for divergent views and cultures, among the younger generations is praiseworthy. I am sure that various activities and initiatives of Indian Association-Shanghai will contribute towards creating a peaceful and inclusive society based on the philosophy of वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम् "the world is one family" .
It is a matter of great satisfaction that the partnerships and understandings developed by Indian Association-Shanghai with the local institutions and Chinese nationals are based on shared vision and common goals.
I compliment the entire team of Indian Association-Shanghai, particularly Shri Mukesh Sharma, the newly elected President for their sustained efforts and contributions. I also acknowledge with appreciation the continued guidance and support extended by the former Presidents, General Secretaries and all other office bearers.
We at the Consulate General of India, Shanghai look forward to closely work with the Indian Association-Shanghai.
