In 1964, "based on reason and necessity" (De Gaulle), France established diplomatic relations with China and became the first Western power to establish diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China at the ambassadorial level. On October 21, 1980, France established a consulate general in Shanghai, which was the first major western country to establish a consulate general in Shanghai after the reform and opening up. Villa Basai became the seat of the French consulate in Shanghai in 1980. This villa, built in 1921, was designed by French architects at the crédit foncier d’Extrême-Orient, and now serves as the residence of the consul general and a symbolic landmark of France in Shanghai. For a century, Villa Basai has witnessed many dignitaries and celebrities who love Sino-French relations stop here.
