Love at Homeland: Chengdu Woman Married to Montpellier Man

‘The conscientious, meticulous, considerate, enthusiastic work attitude and responsible spirit made us feel at ease! This reflects the standard of a five-star international hotel! We are left with a good memory!" This is a letter of thanks received by Chengdu Homeland Hotel. Joyfully, it has become a witness to the civil version of the ‘diplomatic achievements’ of the 60 years of diplomatic relations between China and France.

On 20th April, Miss Li, a girl from Chengdu, and Mr. Frank from Montpellier, a friendly city in France, added a touch of romance to the friendly relationship between China and France with a pure Chinese wedding at Chengdu Homeland Hotel.

“Speaking of which, our love happened to come together because of the Sino-French friendly relations, and it came to fruition on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and France.” Miss Li said happily, “In 1981, Chengdu and Montpellier became the first sister-city relationship between China and France. I was stationed in Montpellier because of my work, and then I met Frank.” At the wedding, Miss Li talked generously about how her romance with Frank began with the establishment of the sister-city relationship between Chengdu and Montpellier.

‘Chengdu and Montpellier are both our homes, and my son-in-law is a lover of Chinese culture. So we chose the Homeland Hotel early on, which is an established five-star hotel that has hosted many high-level banquets with a deep cultural heritage.’ Miss Li's father said, "The wedding was great, very smooth and successful!” While celebrating the wedding, people were also happy for the development of friendly relations between China and France.

Over the past 60 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and France, exchanges and co-operation between the two peoples have become increasingly frequent, and co-operation in various fields has deepened, making positive contributions to world peace and development. The marriage between Miss Li and Mr Frank is a vivid testimony to the friendship between China and France, symbolising the deep affection between the two peoples and promoting the proximity and friendship between the two peoples from generation to generation.
