Beijing, May 24 (Prensa Latina) Chinese Prime Minister Li Qiang will lead China’s delegation to the 9th Trilateral Summit with Japan and South Korea, which will take place in Seoul on the next 26th and 27th of May.

Amid complex changes in the international and regional situation, China hopes that the event in Seoul will inject new impetus into trilateral cooperation for the achievement of more beneficial results for all, local Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said on Thursday.

Wang emphasized, that China is willing to work to implement the consensus of the China-Japan-ROK Cooperation Vision for the next decade, as well as deepen economic, trade and science, technology and culture cooperation, and promote regional economy integration in East Asia.

According to South Korean sources, the Trilateral Summit will address six areas of cooperation: economy and trade, sustainable development, health issues, science and technology, disaster management, and security and people-to-people exchanges.

In addition to participating in the summit event, Premier Li Qiang will attend the China-Japan-Republic of Korea Business Forum scheduled for next Monday, in which about 80 businessmen are expected to be present.
