Christian Dior has become the latest foreign brand to apologize to China after it used a map that Beijing sees as misrepresenting its territory.
The French luxury brand was criticized on Chinese social media after an employee reportedly used a China map in a presentation that excluded Taiwan.
Taiwan has been self-ruled since the 1950s, but Beijing’s official policy is that the island is a Chinese province.
Dior apologized for the “mistake in representation” made by an employee.
