Kathmandu: Nepal`s President Ram Baran Yadav will begin his visit to China from October 31. This will be his debut visit to China since becoming the first president of the Nepal republic in July 2008.

Yadav, who will undertake the visit on the invitation of the Chinese government, will be attending the closing ceremony of the Shanghai Expo where Nepal has a pavilion.

The President had declined an invitation in 2008 to attend the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in China due to political instability in his own country.
An alumnus of India`s Calcutta Medical College, he visited India in February this year and is scheduled to attend a ceremony at the college early next year.
