In 1985, the then vice president of the United States, Bush, opened the U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu

In 1999, after the United States bombed the Chinese Embassy in the former fry, causing casualties and serious damage to buildings, angry Chinese people surrounded the US Consulate General in Chengdu to protest strongly.

Now,

The U.S. consulate in Chengdu has more than 200 staff, including about 150 Chinese employees

u3002 At the beginning of its establishment in 1985, the U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu had only six U.S. officials and about 29 Chinese employees.

According to the official website, in recent years, more and more American officials working in the U.S. consulate in Chengdu can speak Chinese, which reflects the U.S. governments attention to the most important bilateral relations in the world. U.S. officials are all professional diplomats of the U.S. diplomatic department. They request to work in Chengdu. Their working years are generally shorter than those of Chinese employees, and they are highly mobile. They usually stay for 2-3 years.

China wants to manage differences

He told the Global Times:

Among all the US embassies and consulates in China,

The business volume and area of Chengdu consulate general are relatively small

Moreover, the number of American citizens and enterprises involved in the region is relatively limited

u3002 This means that the closure of the Chengdu consulate has little impact on limiting the normal exchange of personnel between China and the United States and actual Sino US relations. This is corresponding to the choice of the smaller Chinese Consulate in Houston by the United States. It also shows that China is still dealing with this issue in the light of managing and controlling differences, trying to prevent the Sino US tensions from escalating sharply in a short period of time.
