City honors those who make it a better place

Shanghai, as an economic center and display window for China’s reform and opening-up drive, has become one of the world’s most international metropolises, where a great number of foreigners live, work and study.

They have injected a strong vitality to the city and facilitated its economic and social development, as well as international cooperation and exchanges.

To recognize their contribution to Shanghai, the city government set up the Magnolia Award, named after the city flower, to be presented annually. The award was inaugurated in 1989 with the Magnolia Silver Award, while the Magnolia Gold Award and Honorary Citizenship were added later.

Yesterday, fifty people from 19 countries were presented with this year’s Magnolia Silver Award by officials including Zhang Xiaosong, director-general of the city’s foreign affairs office.

To date, 1,158 foreigners have received silver awards.

The Gold and Honorary Citizenship awards will be conferred by Mayor Ying Yong at the end of this month.
