Chinese Vice Premier arrives in Islamabad tomorrow for talks on further augmenting bilateral relations in host of fields

Wang Yang, the vice-premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, will attend the Independence Day flag hoisting ceremony in Islamabad on Monday, says a press release from the Chinese Embassy said.

As a member of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, Wang is among the top and most senior leaders in China.

To strengthen ties between the two countries, a contingent of the "guard of honour" of the services of the Chinese Army (PLA) took part in the Pakistan Day military parade held in Islamabad in March.

His visit on this important milestone for Pakistan is a reflection of the all-weather strategic cooperative partnership between Pakistan and China, the statement added.

Wang Yong will call on President Mamnoon Hussain and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and discuss promotion of bilateral relations. He will participate in an inauguration ceremony of projects related to the $50 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
