(Bloomberg) — Chinese Premier Li Qiang has begun the first visit to Australia by a senior Beijing leader since 2017, signaling improved ties between the two nations at a time of escalating security tensions in the Asia-Pacific region.

Li arrived in the southern city of Adelaide on Saturday for the first leg of his trip, where he is expected to visit two pandas in the city’s zoo — the only pair of the iconic Chinese animals currently in Australia. The state of South Australia is also renowned for its vineyards, making it a symbolic stop for Li following China’s lifting of punishing tariffs on local wines earlier this year.
