Sixty-nine entrepreneurs from a variety of fields visited CNB shipyard as part of the visit to France by President Xi Jinping. CNB specialises in the custom construction of ultra-luxury sail and power yachts over 24 metres.
Only two companies in Bordeaux were selected to receive this group. After visiting the shipyard and Dassault Aviation the guests went on to visit wineries and ended their journey with a reception hosted by Mr. Alain Juppé, the Mayor of Bordeaux.
The March 24 visit was organised by France-Emergents-Entreprises, in partnership with the Fondation Prospective and Innovation chaired by Jean Pierre Raffarin, and as part of a cooperation agreement with the China Foundation for International Studies. This organisation is linked to the Institute of Foreign Policy of the Chinese people which is now vice-chaired by Ambassador Cheng Tao (formerly in Morocco and Mali).
