Addressing a reception here marking the Chinese Lunar New Year, Hollande Monday said some cabinet members have visited China after the new French government was sworn in last May.

A number of French entrepreneurs are developing their business in China, an important country in the world, he said, adding that he would also pay a visit to China this year, reported Xinhua.

Hollande voiced hope that France would establish a mutually beneficial relationship with China to boost its economic growth, saying his country looks forward to investment from Chinese enterprises.
