Details
After simply reading its table of contents, I was fairly positive that Chinese Style The Diplomatic Career of Wu Jianmin would be a great success. Now, having actually read the text, I realize my first opinion was most definitely correct.
Wu is only one year older than me, which puts us in the same age bracket. Before reading the book, I knew his personal diplomaticexperiences from the newspaper reports. As the book contains many things which were not covered in the newspapers, I find the book informative and interesting. I am therefore certain that readers will gain a better understanding of Wu's diplomatic career.
In 1991 I held the post of Deputy Mayor of Shanghai City in charge of foreign affairs and foreign trade, and later I held the concurrent post of Director of the Administrative Commission of Pudong New Area. About 70 percent of the delegations of foreign government leaders and important members pay a visit to Shanghai after visiting Beijing, and I have thus enjoyed close contact with many people in the Ministry ofForeign Affairs, including Mr. Wu Jianmin. Before taking up the post of ambassador to the Netherlands in June 1994, he came to Shanghai and we were given the opportunity of exchanging opinions. In addition, he often gave me "assignments" from the many foreign countries in which he was stationed.

Recommendations
On behalf of the Government of the French Republic, I granted Wu Jianmin the Legion of Honor as a token of sincere thanks for his successful work in France.

When you were appointed Chinese Ambassador to the Geneva Office of the United Nations, I worked in the US State Department. Some of my colleagues discussed as to why Wu Jianmin was appointed. All guessed Wu Jianmin was a person who was not easy to cope with. Facts later proved the accuracy of this guess.
