CHENGDU, April 6 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar President U Htin Kyaw arrived in Chengdu, capital of the southwestern province of Sichuan, on Thursday to start his six-day trip in China.

At the invitation of Chinese President Xi Jinping, U Htin Kyaw will pay a state visit to China from April 6 to 11, according to China's Foreign Ministry.

He is accompanied by a delegation of over 30 members, including ministers of Myanmar's commerce and construction departments.

China is the largest trading partner and the biggest source of foreign funding for Myanmar, and the two countries maintain close high-level contacts. Myanmar's State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi had a five-day official visit to China last August.
