BEIJING, June 26 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and his visiting French counterpart Edouard Philippe attended a symposium Monday that gathered executives from more than 30 Chinese and French enterprises.

The two leaders listened to speeches by representatives of the entrepreneurs and talked with them. The entrepreneurs come from manufacture, energy, finance and other industries.

Li said the two countries' enterprises have cooperated for a long time and enjoy great development potential.

"China will open its door even wider to the outside world," Li stressed, adding that this will safeguard and promote the free trade system and provide opportunities to companies worldwide.

"French enterprises are welcome to seize the opportunity and extend their cooperation with China," the Chinese premier said.

Li said China would "open its arms" to welcome deeper cooperation with the French enterprises in high technology.

Li said he belives that the two governments will address concerns raised by enterprises and make it possible for smoother cooperation in a wider range of areas.
