These are a few examples of our tangible actions for China's growth. We consider a bright future. We estimate China is to build half of the future metro networks worldwide and that there will be approximately 300 new aircraft in the country every year. China is strategic for Thales' development. We set the aim of "Developing Thales in China being Chinese" through a strategy of having a "trusted and innovative partner".

Looking forward to 2016, Thales will definitely strengthen its investment in the aerospace and ground transportation industries and to develop more local strategic partnerships. Thales is for instance determined to contribute to the rising Chinese aircraft industry. We are committed to AVIC and COMAC and will continue to provide state of the art solutions to Chinese airlines.

"One belt one road" is now a development strategy and framework for China. Along with Chinese transportation partners, Thales is looking for sustainable services for both the Mainland and overseas needs for a stronger industrial cooperation. We hereby hope our customers and partners will collaborate and innovate together with Thales in China to achieve mutual benefits and make the world safer, together, everywhere.
