The French Prime Minister Francois Fillon is in China right now. Fillon is on a three-day official visit to China aimed at improving the Sino – French bilateral relationship. Fillon is accompanied on the trip by finance minister Christine Lagarde and a number chief executives from within French industry as the two nations seek to develop trade co-operation through various projects. I went to the huge official dinner reception to hear his speech.
Afterwards people could come and talk to the prime minister or ask him questions.
Julien had a chance to talk to the French Prime Minister as well.
The dinner was amazing with loads of cheese and salmon and meat and other delicacies. We rode to a friends house to pick up a raclette machine and also his plant which needs water during the time he is back in Europe for holidays. It looks quite funny transporting a plant on your back wearing a suit and riding a fixed gear bike.
