希望你来临的一年愉快和成功 .

The Times of India has published on the last day of 2007, in the Q&A, an interview with the New Consul General Mao Siwei; He took notice of the largest presence of ethnic Indian Chinese community in Kolkata. Although the number is dwindling down to about 3,000 – 4,000, and politically they are Indian but historically, culturally and linguistically they are Chinese, as one of the reason why the Chinese Consulate has been reopened in Kolkata. The main reason is to facilitate the estimated 30,000 Indian people from Eastern India, who will visit China.
