BEIJING: President Pranab Mukherjee has arrived in Beijing on the second leg of his four-day state visit to China where he will hold talks with top leaders, including his counterpart Xi Jinping, on bilateral, regional and international issues.

President Mukherjee is likely to raise the issue of India's entry to Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) and Chinese view on this besides China's reaction to India's recent move at the UN to ban Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief Maulana Masood Azhar during his talks with the Chinese leadership.

The president, who will also hold bilateral talks with Prime Minister Li Che Quiang, was received by Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin and others on his arrival at Beijing.

Pranab Mukherjee today held discussions with Governor of Guangdong Zhu Xiaodam.

Addressing the India-China Business Forum event at Guangzhou earlier, President Mukherjee invited the investors from the country to be partners in India's growth story.

President Mukherjee said India believes there is great potential for economic and commercial cooperation among the two nations, which face similar opportunities and challenges.

“The stability of our relationship in recent years provides an enabling basis for utilizing these opportunities and coming together,” he added.

The President further said that India welcomes Chinese investments and entrepreneurs to participate in ‘Make in India’ and other flagship initiatives of Government of India.

“India will facilitate efforts of Chinese investors to make their investments in India profitable. We must take advantage of the opportunities that abound in the growth of both our economies,” he added.

President Mukherjee’s four-day visit is being considered crucial in improving bilateral relations especially in the background of the new dynamics in relations between both sides ever since Narendra Modi-led government took office in India.
