    Sean Stein

    Consul General at U.S. Consulate General in Shanghai

    Sean Stein is the Consul General at the U.S. Consulate General in Shanghai. He previously served as Consul General in Shenyang, China. In that role he worked with U.S. states to foster over $1 billion in Chinese investment in the United States – a record at the time – and introduced dozens of U.S. firms to the Chinese market. He also developed a program that became the model for the U.S.-China Tourism Year, a Presidential initiative to attract Chinese tourists to the United States.

    As Principal Officer in Medan, Indonesia, Mr. Stein focused on reconstruction in Aceh after the Boxing Day earthquake and created a mission-wide program to double the number of Indonesian students studying in the United States. While serving as the first Deputy Chief of Mission in Dili, East Timor, Mr. Stein oversaw the establishment of a new mission and construction of a new embassy. When large-scale political violence and instability broke out in Dili, he oversaw the evacuation of U.S. citizens from country and the drawdown of the embassy. Mr. Stein has also served tours in Lagos, Jakarta, and Chengdu.
