Welcome Message from Ambassador JIN Zhijian

Welcome to the website of the Embassy of the People's Republic of China in the Republic of Iceland!

Iceland, located near the Arctic circle, is famous for its unique geologic features and abundant geothermal resources. In this country known as"the land of ice and fire", you have the opportunity of appreciating a series of magnificent landscapes such as glaciers, volcanoes, plate fractures zones, geysers, waterfalls as well as northern lights.

Although geographically far apart from each other, China and Iceland have enjoyed a long history of friendship. Since the establishment of diplomatic ties in 1971, the relations between china and Iceland have been developing steadily and smoothly. Both sides have witnessed solid mutual political trust, frequent exchanges at all levels, fruitful pragmatic cooperation and vigorous humanities exchanges.

The Chinese Embassy in Iceland is dedicated to promoting the exchanges and cooperation between the two countries and advancing all-round developments of China-Iceland relations. We will make every effort to provide high-quality services for Icelandic friends from all walks of life as well as the Chinese community, companies and students in Iceland. We hope this website will serve as an important window on China and China-Iceland relations.

We sincerely thank you for your support for China-Iceland relations and your valuable suggestions and comments are always welcome.
