Noting that the keynote of France-China comprehensive strategic partnership is cooperation, the French president extended his country's congratulations to the People's Republic of China for its huge achievements since its founding 70 years ago, and said that France is committed to being China's reliable and assured strategic partner, and is willing to join efforts with China to build a balanced, stable, safe and prosperous world.

France has full confidence in the future of France-China relations, Macron said, pledging to boost cooperation with China in such fields as aviation, aerospace, nuclear energy, agriculture, finance, scientific research, automobile manufacturing and elderly care, and to align France's Industry of the Future initiative with Made in China 2025.

France stands ready to actively participate in the second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation and the second China International Import Expo (CIIE), Macron said, adding that his country supports vigorously promoting bilateral exchanges and cooperation in education, culture, sports, tourism, military and defense affairs.

Speaking highly of China's important leading role in tackling climate change and multilateral affairs such as peacekeeping, Macron stressed that France deems protectionism unacceptable.

France and China have a lot of common ground in international affairs and have maintained close communication and coordination, he said.
