The 2016 French Open day at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU)'s Antai College of Economics and Management opened on Nov 30.

Huang Zhen, vice president of SJTU, delivered his congratulations at the opening of the event, and looked back on the fruitful achievements between SJTU and top French universities over the past few years.

"It is the exchanges between talents and technology that lay a solid foundation for the mutual development of us all," Huang said.

French Ambassador Maurice Gourdault-Montagne also encouraged more Chinese students to study in France, to broaden their horizons and deal with the challenges brought by globalization.

A roundtable discussion was also held with the theme of "The Era of Women: What can we learn from women's success". Many outstanding women generously shared their experiences of work and reflections on life, such as Clare Chen, chairwoman of CJCHT Group and also an alumna of SJTU, who shared her story on how to start from scratch.

They also had a heated debate over future opportunities for cross-border mergers and acquisitions, especially M & As by Chinese businesses in France, which sparked great interest from scholars and financial experts.

Top French companies, such as the retail giants Carrefour and Auchan, and sports goods chain Decathlon, presented students with their activities, know-how and vision.

On the sidelines was a recruitment fair held throughout the day, attracting more than 50 French multinational corporations as well as small and medium-sized enterprises, offering some 200 posts in human resources, marketing, engineering and information technology.
