Graphics: China, France maintain frequent high-level exchanges


On January 27, China and France will celebrate six decades of diplomatic relations. France was the first major Western country to officially establish diplomatic relations with China, and also the first major Western country to establish a comprehensive partnership and conduct strategic dialogue with China.

Both sides should pass the baton of history, stick to the original intention in establishing the diplomatic relations, carry forward the traditional friendship and push the China-France relationship to a new level, Chinese President Xi Jinping said during a telephone conversation with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, in November 2023.

Macron said that the French side is willing to take the 60th anniversary as an opportunity to intensify high-level exchanges with China, and deepen exchanges and cooperation in such fields as economy, trade and aviation, as well as people-to-people and cultural exchanges.
