Ambassador Lu Shaye, Embassy of the People's Republic of China in the Republic of France, and Ms. Sonia Cheng, Vice-chairman of Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group, attended and demonstrated their support for this significant cultural event.

Uniting rich cultural heritage and a shared appreciation for art and aesthetics, the China-France relationship has given rise to iconic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, the Great Wall, and the Imperial Palace.

Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group's Donations in Empowering and Strengthening Communities

As a testament to its commitment to support nurturing talent in sports, Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group has specially created a 24K Pure Gold Shuttlecock Decoration for auction at this special occasion. The unique shuttlecock decoration showcases the artisan's creativity through its vivid electroformed design. When tilted at a 45-degree angle, it radiates a captivating sparkle. The decoration is elegantly showcased in a red gift box with a gold clasp bearing the auspicious Chinese character "?" symbolising "good fortune". As the clasp is turned upside down to unveil the treasure within, it beautifully represents the arrival of abundant blessings, accompanied by a subtle shimmer of gold.

The auction of the shuttlecock decoration generated RMB 120,000 in funds. The organiser will donate the proceeds to the local badminton clubs under Lin Dan, Taufik Hidayat, Peter Gade and Lee Chong Wei, to promote badminton while supporting aspiring athletes and making a meaningful and positive impact in the lives of the community at large.
