July 11, 2017. Paris – Former Prime Minister of France Jean-Pierre Raffarin today highlighted the similarities between China and France on issues such as globalisation and the need for collaboration at the international level. “If I am to say one thing – among many – on which both France and China have always had consensus, I would say it’s the multilateralism, the international cooperation, and a multipolar vision of the world,” he said. He was speaking to a gathering of French and Chinese business executives at CEIBS 3rd Europe Forum, held in Paris. The event focused on Sino-Franco investments, how France can benefit from China’s economic growth and how Chinese companies can leverage French investors’ resources to better compete both domestically and internationally.
