This year marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of China-France diplomatic ties and the 10th anniversary of the establishment of their comprehensive strategic partnership.
Xi’s visit is of great significance for the China-France relationship as it will “carry forward the undertakings of the predecessors and open up a new road for future,” Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Wang Chao said earlier this month at a press briefing on the visit.
Xi will also attend celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of bilateral ties and meet with French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault and parliamentary leaders.
During Xi’s stay, the two sides are expected to sign agreements on nuclear energy, aviation, urbanization, agriculture and finance, Wang said.
