  中国国务院副总理马凯与法国财政和公共账目部长米歇尔 萨班于2015918日在北京共同主持第三次对话,来自两国政府的高级官员参加。中法双方强调此次对话要从经济财金领域深入落实李克强总理访法期间达成的重要成果,并为两国元首访问做经济财金领域的政策准备。

  对话期间,双方达成以下共识:

  一、 宏观经济形势、政策与全球治理

  1. 双方将根据国内外经济金融形势发展变化,采取适当的政策措施,促进两国经济强劲、可持续和平衡增长。中国政府坚持稳中求进总基调,主动引领经济发展新常态,坚持积极的财政政策,保持公共支出力度,更好地发挥财政自动稳定器和逆周期调节的作用。人民银行继续实施稳健的货币政策,更加注重松紧适度,适时适度预调微调。中国加快推动转方式调结构,强化风险防控,促进经济持续健康发展。法方欢迎中方在年底前根据国际货币基金组织数据公布特殊标准(SDDS)发布经济数据,欢迎中国政府关于推进汇率机制市场化和提高汇率灵活性的承诺。法国正在推动自身经济强劲、可持续和平衡增长。法国政府全面致力于进一步整顿公共财政和推进经济改革,以减少失业,持续改善宏观经济不平衡状况,提升潜在增长率。为此,法国政府正在制定一项长期改革战略,通过一系列强有力的改革措施,释放经济活力,实现经济的现代化。此外,政府改革议程也着力于提高劳动者职业保障水平,并通过救助困难民众和提高教育质量来减少不平等。

  2. 中法双方重申将在G20框架下加强沟通协调,支持G20作为国际经济合作主要论坛发挥重要作用,推动G20在全球经济治理领域发挥更积极作用。双方支持土耳其将共同行动以实现包容和强劲增长作为G20安塔利亚峰会主题。双方致力于促进强劲、可持续和平衡增长。为达成这一目标,双方愿同G20其他成员一道,加强宏观经济政策协调,支持增加就业,推进结构性改革,促进投资和基础设施建设,支持和加强多边贸易体系。双方重申维护国际金融稳定、完善国际经济治理、建设开放型世界经济的重要性。双方努力推动加强国际金融监管,以使所有的金融市场、金融产品和市场主体都得到适当的监管。法方期待中方主办2016G20峰会,将积极支持有关筹备工作。

China-France Joint Fact Sheet on 3rd High Level Economic and Financial Dialogue

(September 18th, 2015, Beijing)

Deepening a close and durable Sino-French economic and financial strategic partnership

 

The China-France High Level Economic and Financial Dialogue (HED) is an important platform for bilateral communication and policy coordination on strategic, overarching and long-term issues in the economic and financial fields. The first and second Dialogue, which was held in November 2013 and September 2014, made an active contribution to expanding and deepening the Sino-French comprehensive strategic partnership.

Chinese Vice-Premier Ma Kai and French Finance and Public Accounts Minister Michel Sapin co-chaired the 3rd HED on September 18, 2015 in Beijing. They were joined by a high-level delegation of senior officials from both countries. China and France stress that the purposes of this dialogue are to thoroughly implement the important achievement of Chinese Premier Li Keqiang’s visit to France, and make the due policy preparation for visits by the heads of state of the two countries in the economic and financial fields.

During this Dialogue, the two sides reached consensus on the following:

I. Macro-economic situations, policies and global economic governance

1.      Both sides will take appropriate policy measures in line with economic and financial developments at home and abroad, in order to promote strong, sustainable and balanced economic growth. The Chinese authorities adhere to the general tone of maintaining stability while making progress, and initiatively lead the new normal economic development. Chinese government adheres to the proactive fiscal policy and keeps public spending to play the better role of automatic fiscal stabilizers and counter-cyclical instruments. PBOC continues to implement a sound monetary policy that is neither too tight nor too loose, conducts timely and appropriate fine-tuning and preemptive adjustments. China will accelerate the growth mode transformation and structure adjustment, strengthen risk prevention and promote sustained and healthy economic development. France welcomes China’s commitment in the release of economic data following the SDDS by the end of the year as well as the authoritiescommitment to move toward more market-oriented exchange rate systems and exchange rate flexibility. France is also promoting strong, sustainable and balanced economic growth. The government is fully committed to further consolidating public finances and reforming its economy in order to reduce unemployment, continue the reduction of macroeconomic imbalances and enhance its potential growth. Therefore a long-term reform strategy is underway introducing a series of strong reforms that aim at modernizing, simplifying and freeing up economic activity. In addition to that, the government's reform agenda also aims at making career paths more secure for workers while combating inequality by supporting people in fragile situation and improving education performance.

2.      Both sides reaffirm strengthening their communication and coordination under the G20 framework, support the critical role of the G20 as the premier forum for international economic cooperation and promote the G20 to play a more active role in global economic governance. Both sides support Turkey to take “Inclusive and Robust Growth through Collective Action” as the theme of the Antalya G20 Summit. Both sides are committed to promoting a strong, sustainable and balanced growth. To achieve this goal, both sides are willing to work together with other G20 members to strengthen macroeconomic policy coordination, support job creation, advance structural reforms, promote investment and infrastructure, support and strengthen the multilateral trading system. Both sides reaffirm the importance of maintaining international financial stability, improving global economic governance, and developing an open world economy. Both sides will work to advance international financial regulation, so that all financial markets, products and participants are regulated or subject to oversight, as appropriate. France is looking forward China to hosting the G20 Summit in 2016, and will actively support its preparation.

3.      China and France support the adoption of an ambitious and legally binding agreement at the Paris Climate Conference that enhances the implementation of the Convention, on the basis of equity and reflecting the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities, in light of different national circumstances. The Paris agreement shall address in a balanced manner, inter alia, mitigation, adaptation, finance, technology development and transfer, capacity building and transparency of action and support. China and France recall the objective of the Convention as set out in its Article 2, and the need to urgently enhance global climate action to ensure the full, effective and sustained implementation of the Convention now, up to and beyond 2020, in light of the latest and best available scientific information, bearing in mind holding the increase in global average temperature below 2°C above pre-industrial levels. China and France call on developed countries to fulfill their commitment to mobilize $100 billion per year by 2020 for climate change adaptation and mitigation in developing countries. They urge developed countries to provide and mobilize enhanced financial support to developing countries for ambitious mitigation and adaptation actions, especially to countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change and recognize complementary support by other countries. They invite relevant international institutions, within their mandates, to develop plans in support of a good outcome for the COP21. China and France welcome and support the task given by the G20 to the FSB to convene public - and private- sector participants to review how the financial sector can take account of climate-related issues. In line with the joint statement on cooperation with third parties, China and France will cooperate to support mitigation and adaptation in the least developed countries, in particular for clean energy access in Africa and implementation of early disaster warning systems.                 

4.      France strongly stresses the importance of a multi polar international monetary system, including through a greater role of the euro and the renminbi. In this regard, provided that the RMB fulfills the existing eligibility criteria, the French side supports the inclusion of the RMB into the SDR currency basket in the IMF’s upcoming SDR review. Both countries commit to respecting the IMF’s procedures and process in the SDR review, and to enhancing their communication on this issue. China recognizes the importance of meeting the transparency standards of other major reserve currencies to successful RMB internationalization. France supports China’s efforts to implement further financial and capital market reforms.

5.      Both sides commit to strengthening their cooperation in the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and continue to improve the IMF’s quota and governance structure. Both sides urge members who have yet to ratify the 2010 quota and governance reforms to do so without delay to further enhance the voice of dynamic emerging markets and developing countries. Both sides affirm the efforts of IMF Executive Board to pursue an interim solution, which aims to converge quota shares to the extent possible to the levels decided under the 14th review. However, the interim solution should not constitute or be seen in any way as a substitute for the 2010 IMF reforms. Both sides committed all efforts to ensure the completion of the 15th general quota review. The two sides reaffirm the importance of maintaining a strong and adequate resourced IMF, as a quota-based institution.

6.      Both sides will continue to strengthen their exchange of views on international financial sector reforms and financial stability issues on bilateral and multilateral platforms, including the topic of “implication of climate change on financial stability” recently raised by the Financial Stability Board.

7.      Both sides agree to build upon the recent success in establishing the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) in order to strengthen collaboration within the multilateral financial architecture. France welcomes participation of China in relevant meetings and activities of the Paris Club.

8.      Both sides welcome the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and agree to maintain close communication and cooperation in implementing this Agenda and the Addis Ababa action Agenda. While implementing the Agenda within their own country, both sides will help developing countries achieve a common and sustainable development.

9.      Both sides stress the importance of an open and fair trade and investment relation, based on reciprocal and mutual benefits, recognizing its importance for growth and job creation. They are committed to maintaining, strengthening and developing a rules-based, transparent, non-discriminatory, open and inclusive Multilateral Trading System and favor the effective enforcement of its rules. France and China are committed to pushing forward the DDA to achieve a substantial outcome by the 10th Ministerial Conference (MC10) with a view to its early conclusion, on a realistic and balanced basis, while respecting the Doha mandate, especially its development dimension, and taking note of the progress that has been made.

10.  France and China welcome the progress that has been made by the IWG in negotiating a new set of international guidelines on officially supported export-credit, that are taking into account varying national interests and situations while consistent with international best practice .

11.  Both sides agree to continuously maintain close cooperation and take measures in coping with Cross-border tax evasion and avoidance. Both sides will continue to support G20 commitment on promoting tax transparency and automatic exchange of information and call on all jurisdictions to comply with the internationally agreed standards of transparency and exchange of information in the tax area within the timeframe they’ve committed. Both sides agree to continuously strengthen communication and cooperation on the implementation of G20/OECD Base Erosion Profit Shifting Action Plans. The effectiveness of the project will be determined by its widespread and consistent implementation. We call on the OECD to prepare a framework by early 2016 with the involvement of interested non-G20 countries, particularly developing countries, on an equal footing. Both sides are committed to help developing countries, especially low income countries strengthen their capacity building in tax policy and administration through various forms.

12.  France and China commit to actively participate in the G20 Anti-Corruption Working Group, especially regarding the combating of bribery, including by active participation with the OECD Working Group on Bribery. Both sides also agree to improve their compliance with the anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing standards defined by the FATF (Financial Action Task Force). In particular, both sides support the FATF ongoing work to clearly identify and address the remaining weaknesses regarding the adoption and implementation of laws criminalizing terrorist financing and of targeted financial sanctions regimes related to terrorism and terrorist financing. Finally, both sides reiterate their commitment to implement the G20 High-Level Principles on Beneficial Ownership Transparency and look forward to further progress on implementation, in order to ensure that the relevant authorities, including anti-corruption, financial and tax authorities, know who owns and controls companies and other legal arrangements, such as trusts.

13.  Both parties support the dialogue held at international level with regard to corporate social responsibility and call for guidelines for a responsible behavior of worldwide companies. France and China will continue to exchange on their experience on corporate social responsibility issues.

 

II. Cooperation on Financial market and Regulation

 

14.  Both sides welcome the ongoing development of an off-shore RMB market in Paris, as a major hub for RMB-denominated activity in the euro area, and agree to continue to support further initiatives in that regard, including in the area of payment and clearing arrangements. French institutional investors and corporates are encouraged to take advantage of RMB-denominated banking and financial services developed in Paris by French and Chinese financial institutions. Both parties encourage Paris EUROPLACE’s action to promote, among French financial institutions and corporates including SMEs, the use of RMB in trade finance, but also in market transactions, Forex and trade, including between China and Africa in order to strengthen the position of Paris as one of the leading European offshore RMB centers. Chinese interbank market intermediaries, such as China Foreign Exchange Trade System (CFETS), Shanghai Clearing House, China Central Depository Clearing Co. Ltd. (CCDC), are encouraged to take part in the development of the off-shore RMB market in Europe. French and Chinese market participants issuing off-shore securities in RMB are encouraged to have recourse to the services provided through the collaboration between Chinese market infrastructures and French infrastructures, such as Euronext and Euroclear France.

15.  China and France welcome the launch of products using the French RQFII quota by Qualified French Institutional Investors. The French RQFII quota will be increased by China when appropriate. Both sides will further support Chinese securities and futures institutions in cooperating with French institutions to establish and conduct business in France, including the development, distribution and portfolio management of RQFII products. Following previous RQFII quota allocations, France welcomes the recent completion of a new French RQFII quota process and looks forward to the prompt finalization of the pending processes. China has agreed to allow Qualified French Institutional Investors to apply RQFII quota for their existing collective investment funds. France welcomes the scheme launched by the People's Bank of China allowing the RMB Qualified Domestic Institutional Investors in China to invest overseas, including into the French financial markets, in RMB.

Both sides are committed to enhancing exchanges and sharing experience in asset management, including in areas where each country shows specific expertise such as Socially Responsible Investment in France.
