CANNES, France, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao met with Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), on Wednesday in Cannes, France.

The two exchanged views on the global economy, the reform of the international monetary system and the role of the IMF.

During the meeting, Hu said that he was very glad to meet with Largarde again and that he would like to congratulate her again on becoming the managing director of the IMF in June.

"Since taking office, in face of the stern economic situation, you have given full play to your talent and capability in promoting reform of the IMF," the Chinese president said.

"You made efforts for nominating Zhu Min as an IMF deputy director after your assumption of office as the managing director of the IMF, which proved to be an important step the IMF has taken in improving its governance structure," Hu noted.
