French consulate celebrates 20 years in Wuhan
Chinese and French representatives from all walks of life attended the 2018 French National Day celebration in Wuhan on July 14. The event was hosted by the Consul General of the Consulate General of France in Wuhan.
The Consul General, Olivier Guyonvarch, said that this year's French National Day is special because it marks the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Consulate General of France in Wuhan. He described Wuhan as a wise choice for French investment, and briefed the audience on major cultural and economic projects organized by the Consulate General this year in Central China. He also expressed his hope to further promote French-Chinese cooperation.
Guests were surprised by the screening of a short video from the reality show "Chinese Restaurant (Season 2)" which is currently airing on Hunan TV. The show was filmed in Colmar, France, and assistance was given by the Consulate General. The cast of the show, Zhao Wei, Shu Qi, Alec Su, Karry Wang and Bai Jugang, all sent their congratulations for the 20th anniversary through the video.
