Royal visits Great Wall


French Socialists candidate Segolene Royal arrived in China today after a night flight from France. Her first stop after Beijing was the Great Wall of China, where she delivered a speech on the economic opportunities in Asia.

"China is a huge market for French companies that demonstrate perseverance, creativity, will. (...) Europe must protect itself more from the countries with low wages because there is an unfair competition, but at the same time, it must have a spirit of conquest, of competition and we have the means."

Contrary to previous rumors, Royal will not meet with Chinese President Hu Jintao, but instead with Vice-President Zeng Qinghong.
