Chinese President Visiting Monaco amid European Tech Worries

Chinese President Visiting Monaco amid European Tech Worries

Sunday, 24 March 2019 07:38 AM EDT

MONACO (AP) — Chinese President Xi Jinping is coming to Monaco and France amid mixed feelings in Europe about China's growing global influence.

Xi is paying the first state visit by a Chinese president to the tiny Mediterranean principality of Monaco on Sunday. He will meet with Prince Albert II and discuss economic and environmental issues.

Monaco has signed a deal with Chinese tech company Huawei to develop its 5G telecommunications network — a sensitive issue with other European countries.

The European Union is China's biggest trading partner but many in Europe worry about unfair competition from Chinese companies and China's global clout.

Monaco banned all flights in its airspace during Xi's visit and any sailing in its waters or mooring in its luxury yacht-filled harbor.

Xi then plans to be in France until Tuesday.
