According to Huang Ping, the Chinese consul-general in New York, there are over 1.2 million overseas Chinese in the 10 states on the U.S. East Coast that belong to his consular district, and most of their mobile phones are equipped with WeChat pay or Alipay thanks to the rapid growth and ever-increasing popularity of mobile payments back in China over the recent years.
根据在纽约的中国驻美国总领事黄平(音译)称,美国东海岸的10个州的超过120万的中国人归他所辖。得益于近年来中国的移动支付方式变得越来越流行,增长速度飞升,所以大部分海外华人的手机上都装有这个应用程序。

"We should keep pace with the times, provide more convenience for these potential clients, and make our services better and more efficient," said Huang, adding that the new payment service also covers non-Chinese clients who use WeChat pay and Alipay.
黄说:“我们要与时俱进,想我们的潜在客户提供方便,让我们的服务更好更有效率?!彼共钩渌嫡飧鲂碌闹Ц斗绞揭捕阅切┦褂梦⑿藕椭Ц侗Φ姆侵泄窨?,
