BEIJING (Reuters) – Chinese President Xi Jinping will travel to Russia next week and attend a major Russian investor forum in St Petersburg, China’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.

The St Petersburg International Economic Forum on June 6-8 is chaired by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who plans to attend.

It is one of Russia’s most high-profile business events, and Moscow uses it to burnish the country’s image as an investment destination.
