MONROVIA, Montserrado â€“ At least 16 members of Chinaâ€™s National Peopleâ€™s Congress are expected in the country next month for a three-day state visit.
According to a release from the office of the speaker of the House of Representatives, Bhofal Chambers, the Chinese Embassy in Monrovia has forwarded schedules to Speaker Chambers for the arrival of the high-level Chinese parliamentary delegation.
The delegation is headed by the NPC vice chairman on standing committees, Wu Weihua. It is expected to arrive in the country on November 10 to meet with the leadership of the Senate and House of Representatives before meeting with President George Weah.
The release also said the visit aims to promote cooperation between the Liberian Legislature and the Chinese Parliament.
â€œIt will also focus on the exchange of views, parliamentary rudiments and a possible signing of cooperation document as a blueprint to build on the counts of the existing cordial relationships between the two lawmaking bodies,â€ the release provided.
The visit of the Chinese parliamentary delegation follows the recent visit of a U.S. congressional delegation earlier this month as guests to the National Legislature.
Members of the delegation held a meeting with the leadership and members of the legislature, participated in a community dialogue forum and as well met with President Weah.
