The French language and culture is highly regarded in China and there is a strong history of cooperation between the 2 countries.

Read here an interview with a Chinese-French translator who speaks of the richness of the French language and why for many Chinese, “le français est la plus belle langue du monde”. China and France have a long and strong relationship. They celebrated 50 years of diplomatic relations in 2014. There are 100,000 students of French in China and that number continues to increase. There are about 1,500 teachers of French and more than 140 Chinese universities with a French department.
