On the second day of his state visit to France, President Milos Zeman was received by President Francoise Hollande. The Czech head of state said he hoped to see a renaissance in bilateral ties both on a political and economic level. He expressed regret that this was the first visit to Paris by a Czech head of state in eleven years. The two leaders expressed support for a joint economic forum which would revitalize business ties and President Hollande accepted an invitation to visit Prague. On Wednesday President Zeman is to meet with Prime Minister Manuel Valls.
