China and France held their fifth High-Level Economic and Financial Dialogue late last week in Beijing. French Minister of Finance and Economy Bruno Le Maire and Chinese Vice-Premier Ma Kai co-chaired the annual dialogue. The two sides reached 71 agreements during the meetings, agreeing to boost cooperation in automobile, aerospace, nuclear power, advanced manufacturing, the Belt and Road initiative and other areas. In an interview with Caixin reporter Qing Ying on Friday, Le Maire said that the dialogue will serve as a positive prelude to French president Emmanuel Macron’s visit to China in January. Le Maire also called for the Chinese government to make further progress in opening China up to French companies.
