Macron welcomes Xi, Merkel and Juncker to Paris

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

French President Emmanuel Macron welcomed German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Jean-Claude Juncker to the Elysee palace in Paris on Monday (March 26) to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to discuss multilaterism issues, particularly climate change and trade.

French officials describe China as both a challenge and partner, saying France must remain especially vigilant over any Chinese attempts to appropriate foreign technology for its own purposes.

The EU is already weighing a more defensive strategy on China, spurred by Beijing's slowness in opening up its economy, Chinese takeovers in critical sectors, and a feeling in European capitals that Beijing has not stood up for free trade.

As part of efforts to further that approach, Macron played host to Merkel and Juncker to meet with Xi to move away from a purely bilateral approach to ties.
