Sharif reached Beijing on Tuesday night on a two-day official visit — maiden since he took office in April this year.

Before leaving for China, he took to Twitter and in a series of tweets, opened up about the purpose and reason of Visit.

 “Leaving for Beijing today. Honoured to be among the first few leaders to have been invited after the historic 20th National Congress of the CPC. At a time when the world is grappling with multiple challenges, Pakistan & China stand together as friends & partners,” wrote Sharif.

He further highlighted that discussions with Chinese leadership will focus on revitalization of CPEC among many other things. “Second phase of CPEC promises to usher in a new era of socio-economic progress that will uplift quality of our people’s lives. There is a lot to learn from Chinese economic miracle,” wrote Sharif.

The Prime Minister is also slated to hold delegation-level talks with Premier Li Keqiang and meet Chinese investors and Pakistani businessmen.
