France and China agree to enhance cooperation

Macron is making his first state visit to China from Monday to Wednesday.

In return, Paris wants to encourage Chinese investment in France, "as long as they create jobs and growth for our countries and they are part of balanced and long-term partners", according to the Elysium.

French President Emmanuel Macron said a contract with China for 184 Airbus A320 narrow-body jets would be finalised soon and that his country also had ambitions to sell A350 and A380 planes to China in coming weeks or months.

During the visit of the French Head of State, several large deals were signed, the value of which was also not publicly announced.

Macron echoed Xi's call on reinforcing bilateral cooperation within the framework of building the Belt and Road, saying that such collaboration is of great strategic significance. "If we don't deal with this responsibly, the first, natural, reaction will be to close up on both sides".

"I think he's right, China should open more, China is opening more", he told reporters on the sidelines of a business forum in Beijing.

"With the aim of reducing its energy intensity by 15 percent by the year 2020, China represents an energy service market with high potential", Levy said in a statement.

The trip comes as Britain's impending departure from the European Union and the more inward-looking policies of U.S. President Donald Trump have raised the prospect of a possible realignment of global influence.
