Xi, Macron agree to cooperate on climate, trade

China's President Xi Jinping claps after his speech as he and other new Politburo Standing Committee members meet with the press at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing China

Macron has been looking to sign billions of dollars in trade links with China, thereby making France one of the biggest trading partners in Europe. The port has been referred to as the "dragon head" of China's new Silk Road into Europe, a network of rail and shipping links created to whisk commodities and goods between China and Europe.

With the United Kingdom less likely to back out from Brexit, France has made a decision to cement its trade ties with China.

But "China can not respect a continent where some member states open every door, where it is easy to buy essential infrastructure".

Paris looks to boost communication and dialogue at a high level and in various fields during this visit, reinforce cooperation in key areas such as aerospace and nuclear power, and introduce a new chapter of bilateral cooperation, Macron said.

Barcelona announce summer signing of 23-year-old Colombian centre-back
Barcelona have wasted no time in bolstering their squad further following Philippe Coutinho's £145million arrival. Barca continue their pursuit of winning the treble tonight as they face Celta Vigo in the Copa del Rey tonight.

Xi said the two countries would "work hand-in-hand" and hold more high-level talks on trade.

Macron, 40, began the trip in the ancient Chinese capital of Xi'an.

"By definition, these roads can only be shared". At least 2 million people are employed to censor and spy on them, that is to say, one censor for every 375 Internet users. "We count on President Macron to firmly remind the Chinese of France's commitment to the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and to press for the release of prominent detainees such as Liu Xia and Huang Qi".

"We have an access to markets which is unbalanced, unsatisfying", Macron told members of the French and Chinese business community at a start-up incubator in Beijing. "We've never been that close to signing a commercial deal", the official said.

The Toulouse, France-based company said separately on Wednesday that George Xu would take over as CEO of Airbus China, having previously run the Tianjin production line.

Like France, economies across the globe want to do more business in the country's massive market and have more investment come to their shores, but China's pace of adopting reforms to further open up its doors is feeding a global backlash.

In June, he urged the European Commission to build a system for screening investments in strategic sectors from outside the bloc, which drew criticism from Beijing.
