PARIS, March 25 (Reuters) - France signed 15 business contracts with China worth billions of euros on Monday, including a multi-plane order with Airbus and a 1 billion euro contract for EDF to build an offshore wind farm in China, the French presidency said.

France’s Fives and China National Building Materials Group signed a 1 billion euro deal to cooperate on energy savings in developing countries. CMA-CGM and China State Shipbulding Corporation signed a 1.2 billion euro deal to build 10 container ships.

The two sides also agreed to lift an embargo of French poultry exports. (Reporting by John Irish and Marine Pennetier; editing by Michel Rose)
