Canton Plage, a pool party, will be held on July 14 to celebrate the French National holiday - Bastille Day. The event is being organized by the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in China (CCIFC) and Hotel Nikko Guangzhou, with the support of the General Consulate of France in Guangzhou.

The city’s French community and Guangzhou residents will gather around the hotel’s pool and garden to mark Bastille Day while enjoying French culture. More than 800 guests will attend, and many activities will be provided into the evening.

Guangzhou and France maintain close cooperation in economy and trade, culture, tourism, education and technology. Since signing a cooperative agreement with Lyon, the third-largest city in France in 1988, Guangzhou and Lyon have forged almost 30 years of cooperation. In January, Guangzhou signed a group of memorandum agreements with France to expand cooperation on cross-border pension services.

“France is a country that not only retains its cultural traditions but also pursues innovation and progress,” said Bertrand Furno, consul general of France in Guangzhou, in his speech at the previous event. “[We] welcome Chinese people to travel to France and to have economic cooperation with France as well.”

As in previous years, some lucky participants at the event will receive gifts offered by partners of Canton Plage during lucky draws. The sponsors of the lucky draw include Air France, Alliance Française, Crowne Plaza, Elisabeth Hospital, GL watches, Nespresso and Sofitel Guangzhou.

Canton Plage 2017 is a good place for companies looking to expand their business activities. Enterprises, including international firms and local companies, will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and establish possible business links at the celebration.
