The bank for a changing world

Immediately following China's accession to the WTO, more than 150 French companies displayed their expertise at the France China trade fair, which was held in Beijing from 20 to 24 November.

As part of the Association Partenariat France, BNP Paribas's stand hosted two companies this year: Jouan and Sides. The stand was visited by François Huwart, State Secretary for Foreign Trade, and it was covered in a news report by China Central Television, one of that country's leading networks.
