Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is likely to visit China in the second week of May, in response to an invitation by Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang, who entered office two months ago, The Jerusalem Post has learned.

The Prime Minister’s Office has not officially announced the trip.

Netanyahu visited China as prime minister in the late 1990s, but has not traveled there since taking office for his second premiership in March 2009.

Netanyahu is looking to boost economic ties with China, because he believes that the Israeli economy has to strengthen its ties to the east.
