French president Francois Hollande, right, welcomes Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife wife Peng Liyuan before a military ceremony at the Invalides in Paris, Wednesday, March 26, 2014. Chinese President Xi Jinping was the toast of France as he embarked on a state visit _ and what better time just days after China ended an anti-dumping, anti-subsidy investigation of French wine. Deal-making and commemorations of a half-century of French diplomatic ties with Communist China were the order of business during Xi's three-day visit, part of his European tour. French officials said the signing of dozens of commercial accords large and small _ from nuclear energy to aerospace to agribusiness, even including a possible sausage deal _ were expected.
