ZURICH, Switzerland - China and Switzerland will announce the conclusion of talks over a free trade agreement (FTA), visiting Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said here Friday.

In a speech delivered at a luncheon with business and financial leaders, Li said he will jointly make the announcement with Swiss President Ueli Maurer.

The China-Switzerland FTA would have special significance beyond the two countries, as it will be the first one to be signed between China and a country in Europe, Li noted.

The FTA would mark a milestone in China-Switzerland relations, Li said.
