Xi Jinping Leaves for Latin America to Visit Ecuador, Peru and Chile

BEIJING – Chinese President Xi Jinping departed for Latin America on Wednesday for a visit to Ecuador and then Peru – where he will participate in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit – and Chile until Nov. 23.

According to the official news agency, Xinhua, the president left Beijing on Wednesday morning accompanied by a delegation including Yang Jiechi, a former foreign minister and now State Councilor, and several top officials of the Communist Party of China.

Xi’s third visit to Latin America since he came to power three years ago, after earlier trips in 2013 and 2014, is focused on the countries on the Pacific coast with which China maintains an important economic and political relationship.

Quito will be the first stop on Xi’s tour, which will make him the first Chinese president to visit Ecuador.

In this country Xi, together with his Ecuadorian counterpart, Rafael Correa, will witness the inauguration of the Coca Codo Sinclair hydroelectric facility and the signing of various economic, cultural and judicial cooperation agreements.

After that, Xi will travel to Peru, where he will participate in the APEC Economic Leaders Meeting in Lima, which will be held on Nov. 19-20, along with other world leaders such as U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In addition, he will make a state visit to Peru, where he will attend the closing ceremony of the “Year of Cultural Exchange” between China and Latin America and the Caribbean and will preside together with President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski over the signing of new agreements in sectors such as mining, energy and infrastructure.

Chile will be Xi’s last stop, which will also be his first visit as president to the country, visiting it twice before assuming the presidency.

The Chinese president and his Chilean counterpart, Michelle Bachelet, are scheduled to attend another signing of cooperation agreements between the two countries in sectors such as economy, commerce and communication.
