Speech of Vice Minister Gao Hucheng at the Opening Ceremony of China-France Forum on Trade and Economic Cooperation


Honorable Chairman Wu Bangguo and President Accoyer,

Honorable Vice Chairman Li Jianguo and Mr. Raffarin,

Dear guests and friends,

I would like to thank former French Prime Minister Raffarin for his warm speech. On the occasion of the official visit by Wu Bangguo, Chairman of the Standing Committee of National People’s Congress of China, Chinese Ministry of Commerce sends a 200-entrepreneur trade and investment delegation to France, and hosts the China-France Forum on Trade and Economic Cooperation together with French Ministry for the Economy, Industry and Employment. This Forum is held when world economy is recovering and international economic cooperation is continuously strengthening. China and France are both international powers, and close economic and trade relations between them will help develop economy of the two countries, and play a positive role in stabilizing world economy.

China-France trade and economic cooperation enjoys a good tradition, solid foundation and vast prospect. Bilateral trade and investment has recovered and increased fast this year, which shows the economic and trade cooperation between the two countries has not only stood the test of the international financial crisis, but also turned crises into opportunities and displayed new vigor of growth. As the sponsor of the Forum, we hope enterprises of the two sides could enhance understanding, explore business opportunities, and make due contribution to the stable, strong, sustainable and balanced economic development of the two nations and the world with substantial achievements.
