Premier Li Keqiang met with Brazilian President Michel Temer in Beijing on Sept 1. Temer is in China for a state visit and will attend the BRICS Xiamen Summit in China’s southeastern coastal city of Xiamen in Fujian province.

Temer said the relationship between China and Brazil has developed well.
“The two sides share a commitment to strengthening cooperation and have the common view on major international issues, such as opposing protectionism and tackling climate changes,” he said.
“Brazil hopes to join hands with China in deepening cooperation in the fields including agriculture, aviation and energy resources, boosting investment cooperation, improving people-to-people exchanges in areas such as tourism and sports, and promoting friendship between both peoples.”
