Chinese President Xi Jingping’s three-day visit to the UAE from July 19 is expected to diversify the partnership and will cover all sectors including the economic, strategic and technological spheres.

This is the Chinese President’s first visit to the UAE.



Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, said the President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, was keen to develop ties with Beijing.

The Chinese President will meet His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

They will discuss ways to enhance bilateral ties in light of the growing strategic cooperation between the two countries.

The Chinese President will be accompanied by a high-profile delegation, which will include a number of ministers, top officials and businesspersons.

In 2017, the value of trade between the UAE and China rose to $53.3 billion, compared to $46.3 billion in the previous year, an increase of 15.1 per cent.



Direct trade with China was valued at $25.685 billion or 48 per cent of the country’s total foreign trade.
