Surplys will also visit China Agricultural Trade Fair, where Lithuanian companies are showcasing their products, he said.

The minister, who started his visit to China on Monday, has already met with the heads of the General Administration of Customs and China's Cuisine Association.

"Possibilities for Lithuanian agricultural and food product exports to China were discussed during the meetings," the spokesman said.

Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė is also leaving for China on Friday to discuss trade issues.
