NICE, France, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao arrived in France on Wednesday to attend a summit of the Group of Twenty (G20) that aims to check the downturn of the global economy and achieve financial stability.
Hu flew in following a visit to Austria.

After his arrival in Nice, the Chinese president traveled by car to Cannes for the G-20 summit, slated for Thursday and Friday.

At the meeting, the G-20 leaders were expected to address the major problems affecting the world economic recovery and the stability of the global financial market.

They were to discuss the eurozone debt crisis, reform of the international monetary system, the strengthening of financial regulations, and the combating of inflation.

President Hu was expected to deliver speeches at the meeting to elaborate on China's stand on the issues expected to be discussed at the summit.

In a telephone conversation with his French counterpart Nicolas Sarkozy last week, President Hu exchanged views concerning the Cannes summit.

"The G-20 has become an important platform for global economic governance," said Hu.

China, Hu said, hopes the G-20 would, by means of the Cannes summit, convey "a strong signal of growth and stability to the international community" and make continued efforts to promote "robust, sustainable and balanced growth for the world economy."

"China is ready to work together with other G20 members to make the Cannes summit a meeting of unity, success and mutual benefit," the Chinese president said.

Sarkozy said he hoped the parties to the summit would adopt common measures to ensure world economic growth.
