Mar 20, 2017-

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang will travel to New Zealand for talks with government and business leaders next week. Li’s visit comes as international attention centres on China’s role in promoting free trade and globalisation amid a turbulent start by new U.S. President Donald Trump. New Zealand and Australia hope to salvage the Trans-Pacific Partnership by encouraging China and other major Asian economies to join the trade treaty after Trump ended U.S. involvement. The Chinese premier will travel to New Zealand after visiting Australia for talks with Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull. He and his wife, Professor Cheng Hong, will lead a delegation of business and government representatives to New Zealand from March 26-29. “The visit is an important step for a strong relationship ,” English said.
