As China Extends Its Influence Abroad, When Does Influence Become Interference?

Chinese President and General Secretary of the Communist Party Xi Jinping giving a speech during the introduction of the Communist Party of China's Politburo Standing Committee in Beijing's Great Hall of the People in October last year. Mr Xi has

"China, which is a great power, does not respect a country that sells its essential infrastructures to the lowest bidder", Macron said.

Earlier Tuesday, Macron struck a rare jarring note when he urged Chinese to open their markets wider and warned lack of action might prompt other countries to close their own.

"Chairman Mao Zedong and General Charles de Gaulle made a historic decision with remarkable political foresight to forge diplomatic ties in 1964", Mr Xi said as the leaders met at the Diaoyutai state guest house in Beijing.

By giving Xi this gift, Macron is supposedly signaling his desire for a long-lasting relationship with China, as reported by the Guardian.

"This requires a strong France".

The project, which has taken eight years to complete, is the largest cooperative project on energy completed between the two nations as well as a great example of bilateral economic cooperation, said Nur Bekri, vice-chairman of China's National Development and Reform Commission and director of China's National Energy Administration.

Among a string of business deals with China Macron secured during his visits, cooperation deals on nuclear and aviation were framed as means to tackle climate change by some Chinese observers. In fact, in Southeast Asia and Africa, China already has developed more advanced tools of influence than those exposed in Australia and New Zealand-or even the United States.




At the incubator, French engineering firm Fives signed a deal with Chinese online retail giant JD.com, which will set up a logistics centre in France to source French food and luxury products for sale online in China.

After Donald Trump announced last summer that he would pull the USA out of the Paris climate deal, French president Emmanuel Macron trolled him in a televised address in English, saying, "Make our planet great again".

"China supports France to play a bigger role in the integrity of Europe", said Xi.

Accompanied by students from the French global school, Mr Macron and his wife Brigitte walked through the imperial palaces of the Forbidden City.

On a sunny but bitterly cold day, Macron asked historian Patrice Fava to translate a banner which read "With fairness, govern from the centre".

At the Forbidden City's pavilion of Supreme Harmony, Macron drew a parallel with the 19th Communist Party congress.

French President Emmanuel Macron sat down with CGTN to discuss Chinese-French relations, the Belt & Road Initiative, and the way forward for Europe. "This also comes from a profoundly anchored history in this country".
