BRUSSELS - Chinese Premier Li Keqiang arrived here Sunday for the 17th China-EU leaders' meeting in Brussels.

During his stay in Brussels, Li will co-chair the China-EU leaders' meeting with President of the European Council Donald Tusk and President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker. Li will also meet Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel.

Li is expected to discuss China-EU cooperation and international and regional issues with European leaders, address the opening ceremony of a China-EU business summit and attend a forum on the China-EU urbanization partnership.

During Li's visit, China and the EU will issue a document to outline their future cooperation priorities and a statement on climate change, and sign several cooperation deals on regional policies, intellectual property rights protection, customs and technological innovation, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said.
