Mme Christine LAGARDE

A word from Christine LAGARDE


China has taken a key position in international trade. With a high rate of growth and the launch of major investment programmes, the Chinese market has become one of the main commercial outlets for French companies. I decided to make China one of the five pilot countries of French foreign trade in terms of public support and to get all the public and private partners to work together in helping our companies to succeed.

France is reputed in China both for its numerous tourist assets and its products from the fashion and luxury sectors. The strong ties that unite France and China become richer with each passing year. Many Chinese people visit our country and our companies display French excellence in Chinese towns.

I am delighted to see the economic ties between France and China grow stronger each day for they are the sign that France is essential to the Chinese investors who wish to develop in Europe . The numerous tourists who visit Paris will discover a town reputed for its monuments and its art of living. They will also discover the business opportunities between France and China and will note that the French are welcoming and that France is one of the primary countries in the world for investors.

More than simple commercial partners, China and France have also shown themselves to be long-term friends, something which your stay with us symbolizes.
