Deals and delicious food on last day of China-France state visit

Chinese President Xi Jinping ended his visit to France with a tour of the Palace of Versailles. He and his wife Peng Liyuan have been hosted by French President Francois Hollande during the three-day state visit.

All three listened to a concert at Versaille’s Royal Opera House and had dinner in the Grand Trianon. The lavish private meal was cooked by the renowned Alain Ducasse – who has the most Michelin stars of any chef in the world.

During the trip, trade deals worth around 18 billion euros have been signed between Paris and Beijing.

These included a Chinese order for 70 Airbus planes, a Chinese stake in French car manufacturer Peugeot-Citroën, and the joint production of 1,000 civilian helicopters over 20 years.
