Beijing seeks foreign partners for $2.1bn Beijing AI hub

Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged to maintain order volumes and parity between Airbus SE and rival Boeing Co., Mr. Macron told a news conference Wednesday.

French officials quoted by the French news agency AFP as Macron wrapped up his three-day visit accompanied by a large French business delegation said the 184 planes would be delivered to 13 airlines in 2019 and 2020.

Macron, 40, has said Europe should not be "naive" in its trade relations, pushing in Brussels for more stringent anti-dumping rules against imports of cheap Chinese steel.

One message was about the huge possibilities cooperation between China and Europe could bring and his commitment to that effort. The leaders agreed to cooperate on fighting global warming, as well as on a variety of other fields like aerospace, nuclear power, finance, education and commerce.

As much as Macron is wooing China, Beijing is also reaching out to Europe through its ambitious Belt and Road Initiative that aims to connect Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa with a vast logistics and transport network.

The environment has also been an issue during the visit, and during a speech Mr Macron said "Make our planet great again" in Chinese, a reference to Donald Trump's decision to pull the USA out of the Paris accord on climate change.

"If we don't deal with this responsibly, the natural reaction, the one we've had for too long, will be to close up on both sides", the French president said.

JD will also educate and provide training programs for senior executives across France about Chinese e-commerce market and will offer express enrolment service for French companies to get them running on JD.com as quickly as possible.

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. But for now, it's unclear if anything will change soon.

President Xi Jinping is receiving Macron with great fanfare, and hopes that little attention will be paid to the delicate issue of the systematic human rights violations on which his rule is based. "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.
