Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi arrived in China's Hangzhou for the G20 Summit where Egypt is a guest of honour, Ahram Arabic website reported.

El-Sisi will participate as a guest in the 2016 G20 Summit at the invitation of Chinese president and summit chairman Xi Jinping, a first for Egypt since the first summit was held in 2008.

Egypt and China have taken recent steps to increase cooperation and investment in a number of fields.

In January, the Chinese president visited Egypt and signed a number of cooperation deals in the transportation, power generation and civil aviation sectors worth $15 billion.

El-Sisi arrived to China from India, where he held talks with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi, signed a maritime transportation agreement between Egypt and India, visited the tomb of Mahatma Gandhi and met with US Secretary of State John Kerry, who was also visiting at the time.
