- SHANGHAI GALA 2024 - Celebrating Six Decades of Sino-French Brilliance

EDITION 2024  


On May 24th, 2024, the CCI FRANCE CHINE hosted its annual Shanghai Gala at the prestigious Pudong Shangri-La, Shanghai, drawing a crowd of over 800 guests, including industry leaders, entrepreneurs, diplomats, and influential figures.


This year’s Gala was a particularly special occasion, as it marked the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and France. Themed "Celebrating Six Decades of Sino-French Brilliance," the evening was a testament to the enduring and mutually beneficial cooperation between the two nations. The event featured insightful speeches, spectacular shows and performances, a Lucky Draw with generous prizes, an upscale dîner à la française, and an Award Ceremony that highlighted the strong cultural and economic ties that have flourished over the past six decades.


The evening commenced with insightful  speeches from prominent figures such as Remi Paul, President of CCI FRANCE CHINE, Bertrand Lortholary, Ambassador of France to China, and Marc-Antoine Jamet, Secretary-General of the LVMH Group. Their words emphasized the importance of Sino-French relations and the shared history of cooperation and mutual respect.


Special thanks were extended to several distinguished guests whose presence underscored the significance of the event. These included Christian Gianella, Head of the Regional Economic Service China at the Embassy; Joan Valadou 王度, Consul General of France in Shanghai; Pascal Gondrand, Director of Business France China; and Frédérique Vidal, Former French Minister of Higher Education, Research, and Innovation. Representing Chinese officials were Mr. Chen Jing, President of SPAFFC; Mr. Liu Guangyong, Deputy Director of the Foreign Affairs Office of Shanghai Municipal People's Government; and Mr. Xue Feng, President of Invest Shanghai. We would like to make a special mention to Frédéric Raillard of FRED & FARID for his exceptional efforts in making the evening vibrant and engaging.


The success of the Shanghai Gala 2024 would not have been possible without the generous support of our partners. Their contributions ensured a memorable evening for all attendees.
