French Minister of Finance and Economy Bruno Le Maire visited Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) on Dec 2, delivering a lecture on developing an open and cooperative economic partnership between China, France and the European Union.

The minister was glad to see France and SJTU establishing close connections, noting that one institute was focusing on jointly cultivating outstanding engineers as well as the diversified cooperation carried out between SJTU's affiliated hospital and French colleges.

Attracting over 300 scholars and students from prestigious national institutes, Le Maire spoke highly of China's important role in global economic development in recent years.

"I hope in the future, France and China will create a mutually beneficial environment with both sides sharing an open market and reducing trade barriers to a minimum," he said.

When asked what advantages France and Europe offer talented individuals, the minister illustrated the various fields in which China and France have cooperated, including finance, aviation, railways and medical health, before encouraging more Chinese talents to join the French job market in the future.
