Globalisation going through major crisis: Macron

Merkel warned against the “poison” of populism that leads states to become increasingly inward-looking

People gather during the demonstration "Trump not welcome!" against the upcoming visit of US President Donald Trump at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos.

"Let us not be naive as globalisation is going through a major crisis and this needs to be fought collectively with global solutions", he said. Honestly, I'm not saying it's impossible.

"We can not end up in a world with a cosmopolitan digital elite and an army of discontented workers", Gentiloni said.

But their relationship began to thaw after Trump accepted an invitation to visit Paris last July for the Bastille Day military parade, a display that impressed Trump so much that he later said he hoped to stage a similar event in Washington on Independence Day.

"We have to change our methodology, which is not to wait for all the people around the table before moving forward".

Macron said that "more ambitious" EU countries must be able to move toward more European integration, even if other European countries don't want to join in.

On labour market reforms: "Education and new safety nets are important to protect people".

In terms of France, he said the country needed "to find its place in world competition", especially as the country was "a nation of entrepreneurs".

"Ladies and gentleman, my first message is that France is back".

The French president, who spoke in English, said there would not be a "French success without a European success" and demanded stronger and better cooperation within the bloc.

On risk: "In France it was forbidden to fail but it was also forbidden to succeed".
