Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro’s six-day visit to China has included stops in the economic and tech hubs of Guangdong, Shanghai and Shenzhen. He is also likely to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping. Venezuelan Executive Vice President Delcy Rodriguez met with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi earlier this week to discuss economic and trade agreements.
Cooperation in tech, as well as mining, agriculture and special economic zones is on the agenda. Maduro also wants Venezuela to join the BRICS group, which he called “the great engine for the acceleration of the process of the birth of a new world.”
