Consider it the selfie sequel to September’s $200 billion photo.

A selfie of French President Francois Hollande taken with some of China’s richest business leaders has gone viral on Chinese social media platform Weibo, garnering tens of thousands of comments, according to China Daily.

Chinese netizens have dubbed the picture the “one trillion yuan selfie” ($157.8 billion) in reference to the total annual revenues of the companies they represent.

The picture, snapped with a camera on a selfie stick by Alibaba’s Jack Ma, was taken during Monday’s breakfast event at the Sofitel Wanda Hotel in Beijing as part of a forum hosted by China Entrepreneur Club.

Featured in the selfie along with Hollande are eight Chinese business tycoons that include Ma, Dalian Wanda Group chairman and China’s richest man Wang Jianlin, Lenovo founder Liu Chuanzhi and Fosun International Limited chairman Guo Guangchang. 

At the event, Hollande promoted business cooperation and investment between the two countries. He said:

“About 3,000 French companies have entered China and hire about 500,000 Chinese, while there are 200 Chinese companies in France with more than 20,000 local people.”
