Chinese President Xi Jinping to visit Philippines as relations between two sides warm

The trip would be Xiís first visit to the Philippines since Duterte took office. The Philippine president invited his Chinese counterpart to Manila during his state visit to Beijing in October 2016.

Cayetano did not say if Xiís trip would be a state or official visit.

ďThis has been an invitation from their first meeting. They accepted it right away. But we are finding the right time. When presidents at this level meet there are a lot of preparations and a lot of things that they want to announce,Ē he said.
