French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe leaves following the weekly Cabinet meeting on June 18, 2018 at the Elysee palace in Paris. 

French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe will fly to China on Friday to cement bilateral ties and promote business partnership in promising sectors, his office said on Thursday.

During his four-day visit, Philippe will continue the dialogue on the partnership on the economic, political and international aspects, it said.

The prime minister will be accompanied by ministers, officials and business leaders, including those from digital business, a promising sector between the two countries.

Philippe will visit the new DS7 production line of PSA, France's main car maker, and meet the French tech community and Chinese startups in Shenzhen.

He will visit Yangshan Port, which has received investment from France's largest container shipping group CMA CGM.

He will also meet Chinese investors in Shanghai to brief them on his government's recent reforms.

President Emmanuel Macron paid a state visit to China in January.
