Forum Francophone des Affaires celebrated its honour day yesterday at Expo 2010, which is the first global event the organisation has participated in China.

China has organised the biggest Expo since 1851 and the event offered a good platform for conversation during this time when international financial crisis are not completely over, said Narany An, the director of the Pavilion of Forum Francophone des Affaires.

The platform will enable French speaking countries to talk with other countries on expanding international communications and the essential role that language played in reshaping social values, An added.

Alain Destrem, Chairman of "Europe-China Cooperation" Club, said that the Expo 2010 enables all Expo participants to have equal rights of speech to express national cultural recognition and innovations.

He said he wished the Expo will be a win-win situation for European technology and Chinese economic growth as well as will advance China’s modernization.

The 68-member Le Forum Francophone des Affaires, established in 1987 as a consortium of French-speaking enterprises, is the only non-governmental global economic organisation recognized by French-speaking communities.
