The economic mission is marking the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the People's Republic of China and the Grand Duchy. On the occassion the bubbly flowed as a reception was given. The delegation also met with the Chinese minister of trade, Chen Deming. Stéphanie and Guillaume were also present for the signing of a contract between Luxembourgish brewery Bofferding and Chinese retailer BHG, that from now on will sell the beer in China.
