Shanghai occupies a critical geopolitical position at the Yangtze River Delta (YRD). The region is currently China's centre for finance, business and economic, research, education, science and technology, manufacturing, tourism and culture, as well as the world’s busiest container port. With a total population of 28.5 million (as of 2022), Shanghai’s population is projected to grow between 35 to 45 million, whereby the population of YRD region is expected to surge to about 200 million of population by 2050.


The Consulate General of Malaysia in Shanghai is mandated to cover the city of Shanghai, and the surrounding provinces in the Yangtze River Delta region, namely Anhui, Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces. We are here to assist the Malaysian disapora, as well as providing support to the Embassy of Malaysia in Beijing, to further enhance the existing good bilateral relations between Malaysia and China, particularly in the areas of trade, investment, tourism and cultural exchange with the relevant authorities within our areas of coverage.
