 French Polynesia's president Edouard Fritch has given his full backing to the new French president Emmanuel Macron, saying there is a shared vision of how Tahiti can help Macron's new strategy for Europe.
 
Fritch is in Paris and met one of Macron's associates Jean-Paul Delevoye at the headquarters of the En Marche movement.
 
Delevoye said President Macron believed that France's presence on all five continents gave it a chance to again find a great place among nations.
 
Fritch said they also discussed the significance of the Elysee Accord which is long-term co-operation agreement signed this year by Macron's predecessor.

In the lead-up to the French presidential election, Macron vowed to maintain indexed salaries for French public servants on overseas postings.
