Macron appeals to China for partnership in climate, Africa

Macron appeals to China for partnership in climate, Africa

"This industrial ramp-up targets five aircraft by early 2019 and six per month by early 2020, " a statement from the European plane manufacturer said.

As a demonstration of the two countries' commitment to multilateralism, Xi and Macron said they will "keep constructive dialogues on global treaties", including biodiversity, nature conservation and protecting marine life.

Europe was now united and ready to cooperate with China after years of crisis-management and economic stagnation, Macron said.

The two leaders witnessed the signing of dozens of agreements covering areas including environmental protection, finance, agriculture and people-to-people exchanges.

He also welcomed Macron's endorsement of his cherished One Belt, One Road project, a $1 trillion revival of ancient Silk Road land and sea trading routes. "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".

Later, Macron's administration launched a "Make Our Planet Great Again" initiative inviting researchers, entrepreneurs, and NGO workers dedicated to climate change work to relocate to France. "We need a coordinated European approach... that gives China more visibility about our agenda", Reuters quoted the president as saying. "That's why France is in favor of defining strategic sectors where we want to protect investments..."

"If we don't deal with this responsibly, the first, natural, reaction will be to close up on both sides", he said. A position he did not hide during the visit. He told President Xi Jinping to open up Chinese markets to foreign investment, or risk a protectionist backlash.

But while the rhetoric has been strong, and TV commentary suggests Macron and his 64-year-old wife Brigitte have been a big hit with the Chinese, the underlying success of state visits is best measured these days in business contracts. "It will be hard and take time, because France will be entering a very competitive market already open to the US, Uruguay, Canada and Australia", he said.

If China continues to ignore such calls, however, the relationship is likely to only continue to deteriorate.
