On February 23, French Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve visited the Sino-French Wuhan Ecological Demonstration City, a national cooperation project between China and France situated in Caidian District of Wuhan, capital city of central China’s Hubei Province.

On March 26 of 2014, under the witness of Chinese President Xi Jinping and French President Francois Hollande, the governments of the two countries signed an agreement in Paris on constructing a sustainable city in Wuhan.

Wuhan is a city full of energy and a city where French companies play a particularly important role in, said Cazeneuve at a promotional conference for this eco-city on his tour. He added that France and Hubei share a long history of cooperation in such fields as automobile, medical care and transport, and France hopes to expand this cooperation to urban planning, housing construction, clean energy, wastewater treatment and cultural heritage protection, so as to adapt to the challenges brought by climate change and to build the city of tomorrow together.

"Ici, dans l'amitié franco-chinoise se construit la ville durable", Bernard Cazeneuve inscribed after visiting an exhibition on the eco-city to deliver his good wishes for the friendship between China and France.
