Officially, Shanghai is Montreal's sister city. In a spirit of familial goodwill, we have decided to devote a week to looking at our "sister" city.

To start, here are a few facts about Shanghai:

Shanghai is located on the east coast of China. Most flights there from Montreal take about 27 hours.

Canada oldest consular mission in the East, established in 1908, is in Shanghai.

Shanghai is China's largest city, estimated to be about 18 million. It is growing at a rate of 30,000 new inhabitants a day.

In 2002 trade between Canada and China was valued at just under 20 billion dollars. Just 4 billion of that was exported from Canada.
