Friday, January 13, 2012

On January 15th, France is preparing to welcome two pandas on loan from China, highly symbolic and political project for which Celtic China Group actively participated.

IT has been four years since the Chinese and French authorities negotiated at a higher level, the loan for 10 years of Yuan Zi and Huan Huan, two pandas born in the reserve of Chengdu, Sichuan. After many negotiations and a lot of tenacity from Beauval Zoo owners, the agreement was finally signed last December by Chinese President Hu Jintao himself.

However, the Beauval Zoo Park had long prepared this exceptional event since 2010 and started the construction of a 3 hectare enclosure dedicated to the two pandas. On this occasion, Celtic China Group, has signed a contract for the sourcing and transportation of all equipment for the decorative area dedicated to pandas. This project involved more than 20 containers full of tiles, vases, sculptures and other decorative items that make the reception area pandas "the most beautiful panda area they had seen outside of Chengdu reserve" according to Chinese officials.

Proud of this partnership with the Beauval Zoo, Celtic China Group wanted to continue his involvement in this project for years and now occupies the purchase of all the souvenirs sold in stores zoo including special panda collection.

We wish the best success to the Beauval Zoo after so many efforts benefiting to their visitors who have the chance to discover animals so special and rare!
