Philippine Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario will leave on Thursday for a two-day visit to China to "advance the bilateral relations" of the two countries, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said on Wednesday.

The department said in a statement Del Rosario's official visit to Beijing was upon the invitation of Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi, whom he will have a meeting with.

"During this visit, he (Del Rosario) is expected to talk about a wide range of topics, including trade, investment, culture, tourism, defense cooperation, education, science and technology, people-to-people relations, and cooperation against transnational crimes," the DFA said.

Over the past 36 years of diplomatic relations, the Philippines and China have signed over 100 agreements and Secretary del Rosario will be discussing ways to move these forward during his visit, the statement said.
