Haixun 31, one of China's largest patrol ships, left south China's Guangdong Province for a two-week visit to Singapore, the first time China's maritime safety authorities have sent a large patrol ship to visit a foreign country.

The Chinese delegate aboard will hold talks with Singapore maritimes officials on sea rescue, anti-piracy and port management, said an official with the provincial maritime affairs bureau.

The trip is expected to promote cooperation in maritime affairs as well as in marine economy and environment, said the official.

The 3,000-tonne ship will stay in Singapore for six days.
