  • 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, who has positioned himself as the leading voice of the European Union, came to Beijing to discuss an ambitious agenda with Xi, the most powerful Chinese leader in decades.

Macron's visit to Beijing is meant to strengthen ties between China and France and also to stabilize trade relations between Europe and Beijing, reports the French media.

In return, Paris wants to encourage Chinese investment in France, "as long as they create jobs and growth for our countries and they are part of balanced and long-term partners", according to the Elysium. "We've never been that close to signing a commercial deal", the official said.

The French President has also released a video of him saying "make the planet great again" in Mandarin.

"China is conducting its economic development strategy and, given the size of this market, it has an impact on globalisation as a whole", Mr Macron said during a visit to a start-up incubator in the city.

Macron said that the president reaffirmed his trust in Airbus, and the fact that China would maintain its orders' volume in the coming years and maintain the market ratio between Airbus and Boeing.

French President Emmanuel Macron said China and Europe should work together on Beijing's "Belt and Road" initiative, a project aiming to build a modern-day "Silk Road" he said could not be "one-way".

Macron forged the slogan - an echo of U.S. president Donald Trump's "make America great again" - a year ago to show his continued support for the Paris Agreement in the face of Trump's decision to withdraw the US. "Let's open up both instead".

French officials said they were not disappointed, pointing to a sales contract for CFM jet engines by France's Safran SAF.PA and General Electric GE.N , and the lifting of a Chinese embargo on French beef, among other deals. As well as aerospace, the agrifood sector is seen as key.

While he pressed France's concerns about its trade deficit with China, Macron came away with the last minute announcement of a Chinese commitment to buy 184 single-aisle A320 planes from European aviation giant Airbus.

Chinese online retailer JD.com has unveiled plans to sell €2bn of French goods to Chinese consumers in the next two years.

China and France have promoted themselves as leaders on global warming after Trump pulled out of the Paris climate agreement.
