Sustainable development focus for French in Wuhan

11 December 2013
French Consul General Philippe Martinet has said he will make sustainable development his main mission in developing ties between France and Wuhan, capital of Hubei province.

Wuhan, a sister city to Bordeaux and Essonne, is home to 100 French companies and more than 1,000 French citizens.

“In the near future, sustainable development will become the core focus of Sino-French cooperation. And Wuhan city ‘circle’ has already been identified by the French and Chinese governments as a demonstration zone for this plan,” Martinet said.

Wuhan city circle is a pilot project approved by the State Council in 2007 to build cities around Wuhan into a ‘resource-conservation and environmentally friendly society’.

In 2010, France and Hubei province signed a framework cooperation agreement for sustainable development. Bordeaux and Wuhan also recently signed an agreement to work on carbon emission diagnostic projects, which is supported by France’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
