Primer pa­trio

Ar­gen­tine com­mu­nity in Shang­hai cel­e­brates their na­tional day

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - COMMUNITY - By Yang Lan

To cel­e­brate Ar­gentina’s Na­tional Day, the Con­sulate Gen­eral of Ar­gentina in Shang­hai or­ga­nized a re­cep­tion for the Ar­gen­tine com­mu­nity and its lo­cal busi­ness part­ners.

“It has been 43 years since Ar­gentina and China es­tab­lished diplo­matic re­la­tions. The ties be­tween the two coun­tries in pol­i­tics, com­merce, and cul­ture are grow­ing stronger year by year,” Ed­uardo Mar­tire, Con­sul Gen­eral of Ar­gentina in Shang­hai (pic­tured top left) said at the event.

Mar­tire be­lieves that the big­gest achieve­ment in their bi­lat­eral re­la­tions is that the two cul­tures have gained more knowl­edge of each other.

At the fes­tive event, held at Obelisco Restau­rant on Mon­day, Ar­gen­tine pro­fes­sors danced with Chi­nese stu­dents for a per­for­mance of the fa­mous Ar­gen­tine dance Tango. Prior to the evening, the dancers prac­ticed their rou­tines at Tango Go and Tango Bang, two schools in Shang­hai that teach Tango.

Primer go­b­ierno pa­trio, known as Ar­gentina’s na­tional day, com­mem­o­rates the May Revo­lu­tion and the cre­ation of the South Amer­i­can na­tion’s first pa­tri­otic gov­ern­ment on May 25, 1810.

Lat­est data shows that the num­ber of Chi­nese im­mi­grants living in Ar­gentina has reached 120,000, while the num­ber of reg­is­tered Ar­gen­tine ex­pats in Shang­hai and the sur­round­ing Yangtze River Delta re­gion is cur­rently 250.
