"L’année s’est très bien tenue, avec des livraisons en décembre, supérieures à celles de décembre 2016, c’est-à-dire plus de 111. Comme nous avions livré 591 avions au 30 novembre, cela implique que nous sommes au-dessus de 700 avions".
My attempt at translation : "It was a very good year. Deliveries in December 2017 exceeded the December 2016 number (111). As we had delivered more than 591 planes before the end of November, the yearly total exceeds 700".

some comment regarding CAAC certificate regarding the new types which cause "significant" delay
Getting approval from the Chinese regulator has often come closely times around political visits that accompany other deals. Boeing won Chinese certification for its single-aisle 737 Max in mid-October, just before a visit to the country by President Trump in November.
It is sad all this undeliverable frames because of Chines certification delays, at least the P&W A321neo seems now to be certified.
But, looking at the whole, no deliveries of any frames seem to take off this January, even though there seem to be quite a bit of undelivered stock on hand, apart from A350 destined for China or Qatar.
