Chinese President Xi Jinping has signed scores of business deals with French President Francois Hollande on the second day of a three-day visit.

Ordering 70 Airbus planes worth more than $10bn dollars, and investing $1.1bn dollars with the country's largest carmaker, PSA Peugeot Citroen, Xi signed $25 bn dollars worth of business deals.

President Hollande said the deals would bring much-needed growth to the economy.
