But the trip comes at a time of deep divisions between Beijing and the West.

During the war in Ukraine, China stayed close to Russia, while Germany and the European Union supplied Kyiv with weapons and imposed harsh sanctions on Moscow.

There are also other major divisions. The West is concerned about human rights, the treatment of Uyghur Muslims, and China’s intentions toward Taiwan.

But the trade relations of Germany and China are extremely important to both of them.

President Xi Jinping said he looked forward to greater cooperation between their countries during what he called “a time of change and chaos.”

And Scholz said he was not in favor of breaking with China, but wanted a relationship based on equality.
