Germany and China to form ‘economic dream team’

<p>China and Germany are set to form a new partnership.</p>

Talks are ongoing over the forming of a new economic partnership between Germany and China, two of the strongest economies in the world.

Chinese premier Li Keqiang stated on a visit to Berlin yesterday (May 27th) that the Asian nation is ready to open a number of sectors to German investors for the first time.

"If we both come together in an ideal and optimal way, a dream team will emerge," Li told representatives of German business, according to a report by Reuters.

Manufacturing, logistics, education and healthcare were named as four of the sectors where German investors could be welcomed to make a move into the Chinese economy, he said.

Li's visit to Berlin this week is the first time he has visited a capital city in Europe since he took over his role in March.

Data released earlier this month showed exports from China surged by 14.7 per cent compared with a year earlier, outperforming many of the predictions made by analysts.
