• Capital of the People's Republic of China
  • Surface area: 16,411 km2
  • Population: 21,707,000
  • Title and signature date of the agreement: Friendship and cooperation agreement between the Municipality of Beijing and the Brussels-Capital Region signed 22 September 1994.

Sometimes referred to as Mandarin or Imperial cuisine, Beijing's food features a range of dishes and desserts influenced by different Chinese culinary traditions. Since the climate is not suitable for rice growing, wheat, in the form of noodles or bread, is the main starchy food. Another of its key characteristics is a pronounced taste for strong-flavoured roots and vegetables such as pepper, garlic, ginger, leeks, chives and coriander.
