Chinese lanterns in the olive trees were the clear sign that today, the ITER Organization was celebrating its first ''China Day.''
The sun was at its hottest this Friday at 12:30 p.m. when close to 500 ITER employees gathered for China Day—the first of a series of ITER Member Days that celebrate the unique, multicultural work environment of ITER and offer ITER employees the occasion to discover each other's cultures and traditional foods.

A variety of tasty Chinese foods, traditional music, and colourful decoration gave the event a distinctive Chinese flavour and created the perfect opportunity for employees to share some time together and catch up.
