T.S.H. the Sovereign Prince and Princess Charlene this morning welcomed the President of the Republic of China, H.E. Mr Xi Jinping, accompanied by First Lady Ms Peng Liyuan, for a state visit.
The visit was made in the context of a friendly relationship on both sides, following the establishment of diplomatic relations on 16 January 1996. It echoes various visits made by H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince to China, but is nonetheless unique, being the first time that Monaco has hosted a Chinese head of state.
During their bilateral meeting, the two heads of state discussed key topics for both nations: the economy, sport, culture and the environment, all with a view to promoting harmonious development of relations between Monaco and China, as well as a “shared destiny for humanity”.
