China’s president talks economic relations and international affairs with Finland’s president

Chinese leader Xi Jinping met with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto to discuss economic relations and international affairs on Wednesday (April 5) in Helsinki, Finland.

Xi said, upon his first visit to Finland as head of state, that China and Finland will increase cooperation under the China-European Union framework.

China and Finland are both threatened by U.S. President Donald Trump’s pledge to increase global protectionism. Finnish economic drivers such as multinational communications and information technology company, Nokia, will lose out in Trump’s “America first” actions.

The Xi’s visit to Finland, a European Union member state, is a chance for China to get support from Europe, its biggest trading partner.

Xi will also meet Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipila.

Xi made the trip to Finland on his way to the United States, where he will meet Trump at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago retreat in Florida.
