President Kersti Kaljulaid met with Prime Minister Li Keqiang of the People's Republic of China in Tianjin today to discuss cooperation between their two countries on economic matters.

"Estonian and Chinese companies are already working closely together, in the field of e-trading, the start-up sector, the food industry and for example in the construction of timber houses, where an Estonian firm has opened a factory in China, increasing its production capacity significantly," President Kaljulaid explained after the meeting.

Other topics, among them boosting cooperation on tourism and developing new transport options both bilaterally and within the 16+1 format, were also discussed at the meeting.
