Abstract : French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian will attend the second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF) to be held in late April in Beijing, according to Jean-Maurice Ripert, French Ambassador to China announced at a press conference in Beijing recently.

BEIJING, April 19 (Xinhua) -- French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian will attend the second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF) as the special envoy of French President Emmanuel Macron, according to Jean-Maurice Ripert, French Ambassador to China announced at a press conference in Beijing recently.

The 2nd Belt and Road Forum will be held in late April in Beijing.

The ambassador said that France is willing to strengthen the docking of the European Union (EU) connectivity platform with the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), and they are drawing up a list of 13 cooperative projects between China and France in the third party market.

Those projects are involved with financial sustainability, environmental protection and social responsibility, and are expected to contribute to the local ecological transformation both in China and France, according to the ambassador.

It is reported that China and France will deepen cooperation in traditional industrial sectors and explore cooperative new areas.

To be specific, France's Airbus has reached an agreement with China worth of some 30 billion U.S. dollars to sell 300 passenger aircrafts to China, while the two sides will continue joining hands in the aerospace sector to launch the Earth observation satellites in the future.

The ambassador also revealed that the two countries will also accelerate strategy interconnection and all-around cooperation in emerging fields of artificial intelligence (AI), medicine and health, ecological agriculture, and finance, to further deepen the integration of industrial interests between China and France.
