05 February 2015

China and France have signed agreements to foster collaboration across a range of high-tech sectors, many of them linked to defence.

According to official statements on 30 January, the two countries will pursue co-operation programmes in sectors including commercial aerospace, nuclear technologies, and satellites.

China’s State Administration for Science, Technology, and Industry for National Defense (SASTIND) – the country’s primary agency for defence industry development – said the agreements will promote “mutually beneficial co-operation” and drive the “China-France strategic partnership into a new era”.

SASTIND said Chinese Premier Li Keqiang also urged visiting French Prime Minister Manuel Valls to “ease restrictions on export of high-technology products to China”.
