Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan will embark on a four-day visit to China on April 25 to attend the second 'Belt and Road Forum' in Beijing. Khan will visit the country on the invitation of his Chinese counterpart Xi Jimping, reported Radio Pakistan. He will deliver a keynote speech in the opening ceremony of the 'Belt and Road Forum' on April 26.

The forum provides a platform to the countries participating in Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) for exchanging views and experiences on regional connectivity, policy synergy, socio-economic development and trade and commerce. This year, the forum will be attended by 40 heads of state or government and representatives from more than 100 countries, international organisations, and the corporate sector.

The BRI is a development strategy adopted by the Chinese government involving infrastructure development and investments in countries in Europe, Asia, and Africa. During the visit, Khan is also slated to hold meetings with Xi Jimping and Premier Li Keqiang in Beijing. The two countries will sign several agreements and memorandums of understanding (MoUs) for the corporation in various areas. This will be Khan's second official visit to China after assuming office in August last year.
