Peruís Kuczynski in Beijing to Boost Economic Ties with China

BEIJING Ė Peruís President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski arrived on Monday in Beijing for an official tour to boost economic, trade and investment ties with China.

The presidential plane landed in the Chinese capital shortly after 3 p.m., and the delegation made its way to the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in western Beijing, Peruvian diplomatic sources told EFE.

The official agenda of the visit will begin Tuesday with Kuczynskiís meeting with the authorities of the state-owned Bank of China, and later, another with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, following which several bilateral cooperation treaties are expected to be signed.

China, Peruís main trade partner, is Kuczynskiís first destination abroad after he took office on July 28.

Before leaving for China, the president underlined that the main objectives of the visit Ė that include stops in Beijing and Shanghai Ė are attracting investment and finding new markets for Peru in China.

Port, rail and mining projects are sectors in which Kuczynski will seek Chinese investment, according to a statement released by the presidential press secretariat.

The presidential committee in China includes First Vice-President and Transport and Communications Minister Martin Vizcarra; Foreign Minister Ricardo Luna, Energy and Mines Minister Gonzalo Tamayo, and Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister Eduardo Ferreyros.

The visit will end on Sept. 19 when Kuczynski is set to leave for the United States to attend the 71st session of the UN General Assembly in New York and where he will also meet with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
