        Ties with France to maintain 'steady path'


Nicolas Sarkozy's victory in the presidential election is a triumph of French voters' vision of reforms, Chinese experts said yesterday.

As for China-France ties, experts say bilateral relations will not see great ups and downs because Sarkozy knows Beijing is an important player in that part of the world.

Wang Yizhou, deputy director at the Institute of World Economic and Politics, under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said: "We sincerely hope that the new regime will carry on and consolidate its predecessor's effective policy of developing friendly relations with China, given that it has benefited both significantly."

"The record turnout (80.44 percent), the highest since 1988, mirrors the voters' wish to see a clear direction and purposeful reform after 12 years of Jacques Chirac's rule," Ding Yifan, deputy director of the Institute of World Development, under the Development Research Center of the State Council, said.

"The 52-year-old conservative, who will take over as French president on May 16, also represents a generational change in French politics, in which World War II and the Cold War would no longer be the determining factors," Ding said.

A long-time political figure and member of the Chirac cabinet for much of the past five years, Sarkozy was enough of a political insider to become a credible head of state but remained enough of an outsider to distance himself from Chirac's old regime.

"To chart a new course for an economically sluggish nation fraught with social tensions and worries over globalization, he ran his campaign with a single message: change, but not too much to scare voters," Liu Jiansheng, a researcher from the China Institute of International Studies, said.

"He has pledged to remake France by slashing unemployment, cutting taxes, and loosening the tightly regulated labour market to stimulate faster growth in the world's sixth-largest economy," Liu said.

These polices are more pragmatic than those of Royal, Liu said. His call for restoring France's traditional social values, tightening control on immigrants and improving security by forceful means, won the hearts of right-wing voters, and even part of the ultra-right voters.

But the experts said that for all his determination and talk of change, Sarkozy still needs to form a majority in parliament after June's legislative elections before he can make good on his promises.

The former interior minister, who is largely untested in foreign policy and widely considered pro-American, indicated in his victory speech a break from the trans-Atlantic tension of the Chirac era, Liu said. But he sought to strike a balanced approach toward Washington, making it clear that France would remain an independent voice.
