China sends prime minister to Australia for the first time since 2017

Premier Li Qiang will be the highest-ranking Chinese leader to visit Australia in seven years when he lands on Saturday, a diplomatic milestone that could be overshadowed by renewed friction over investment and military deployments.

Li will travel to Adelaide, Canberra and Perth for a four-day tour, the Australian government said in a statement on Tuesday. He will be the first Chinese leader to visit Australia since his predecessor, Li Keqiang, last toured in March 2017.

“Welcoming the Chinese Prime Minister to our shores is an opportunity for Australia to advance our interests by demonstrating our national values, the qualities of our people and the strengths of our economy,” Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said in a statement.
