New Website Highlights U.S.-Xiamen Ties

The U.S. Consulate General, Guangzhou, is pleased to announce the launch of a new website, American in Xiamen. The website highlights the current activities of the Consulate in Xiamen and demonstrates the close nature of the ties between America and Xiamen. The website address is:

中文: http://chinese.xiamen.usvpp.gov/

English: http://xiamen.usvpp.gov/

The “Events” section of the website provides pictures and descriptions of the Consulate’s most recent activities in Xiamen, including the Consulate’s meeting with Mayor Liu Cigui and participation in the most recent CIFIT. The “About Us” section of the website links to a welcome message from Consul General Robert Goldberg and to a continuing commentary on America-Xiamen connections by Officer-designee for Xiamen Gary Oba. Other sections contain useful links to information about U.S. visas, study in the U.S., U.S. citizen services, and the U.S. Foreign Commercial Service. The website is designed to serve as a useful beginning point for Xiamen residents who would like official information about the United States of America.

Officer-designee for Xiamen Gary Oba will next be in Xiamen on November 10-11, in Guangzhou on November 12, and in Fuzhou November 13-14. Individuals and media personnel interested in the activities of the Consulate are encouraged to frequently check the new website for the latest updates.
