The third edition of the International Capital Conference (ICC), organized by Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) and Cavendish Group International (CGI), will be held in Paris on Oct. 12 and 13, the French Finance Ministry announced on Tuesday.

Invited by French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde, Zhou Wenzhong, Secretary-general of the Boao Forum, and Long Yongtu, Director of the Study Center on the G20, will head a delegation of 100 senior political and business leaders from China.

The Chinese representatives will meet their French and European counterparts at the French Ministry of Finance at Bercy during the two-day meeting.

This year the ICC will be organized around keynote speeches, panel discussions, case studies and round-tables involving multinational business leaders and senior officials.

The Chinese delegation of business leaders -- the all-time largest one to visit Paris -- will discuss a wide range of issues including the internationalization of China's currency Yuan, China 's relations with the European Union, the transformation of Chinese enterprises, and China's views on the euro, the ministry said in a newsletter.

Communications on industrial sectors, such as aerospace and transport, will also be highlighted in this year's conference. French and Chinese policy-makers and business leaders are expected to discuss cooperation and innovation in these sectors.

Besides, low-emission energy solutions and financing sustainable development will also be topical issues throughout the conference, as France and China have much to share on that, the ministry added.

The last two years' conferences were held in London. The shift of the ICC to Pairs "reflects the growing importance of developing and deepening the France-China relationship," the ministry said.
