Macron Says EU Needs Coordinated Stance On Chinese Trade

French President Emmanuel Macron speaks at a press conference at the French Embassy in Beijing Wednesday Jan. 10 2018

Macron said he wanted to "strengthen collective security" and promote joint efforts to fight climate change.

"France has the experience of unilateral imperialism in Africa, which sometimes led to the worst", he said.

Travel and tourism within China are predicted to grow at a rate of 6%, with the number of people flying to and from the country reaching 1.5 billion by 2036 according to data from the International Air Transport Association.

'The two countries can enhance political mutual trust and fully tap the potential of cooperation transcending differences on the social system, development stage and culture, ' Xi said. But it did not announce any new plane orders from China. The two signed several major trade deals during the visit, that included fields such as food, nuclear power and aerospace.

After their talk, Xi and Macron jointly met with delegates attending the first meeting of the France-China entrepreneurs' council. New jet orders have historically featured during such tours by French leaders.

On Monday (Jan. 8) evening, Macron tweeted a video of himself practicing saying 让地球再次伟大 (rang diqiu zaici weida), or "Make our planet great again" in Mandarin.

"If investors come to France or Europe only to gain access to the best technology without benefiting France or any other European country then they are not welcome", Le Maire told reporters over a lunch with reporters also attended by President Emmanuel Macron.

USA and European firms also complain about being forced to hand over intellectual property secrets in order to gain market access.

The visit has been widely covered in China, and Mr Macron is seen as representing Europe as much as France. He was formally handed a second term and his name was enshrined in the party's constitution.

In his short time in office, 40-year-old Macron has managed to push through reforms to France's labour market and seen a steady rise in business and consumer confidence.

U.S. rival Boeing sold 300 jets last November during a visit by President Donald Trump as China splits orders to cope with airline traffic as middle-class aspirations grow.
