BEIJING: German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrived in China on Sunday for her seventh visit since 2005, with economic ties topping the agenda and a high-powered business delegation in tow. Merkel touched down early on Sunday in the southwestern city of Chengdu, where she met local officials, visited a market and toured a factory operated by German car manufacturer Volkswagen. Merkel is due to arrive later on Sunday in Beijing, where she will wrap up the first day of the three-day visit by meeting Premier Li Keqiang for dinner at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse. For the European Union’s biggest economy, China is a crucial mass market.
