China, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in this eastern Chinese city on Saturday for the 11th summit of the Group of 20 (G20) major economies.

He joined a constellation of national leaders and international organization chiefs who had already arrived for this year's G20 gathering, which is themed "Toward an Innovative, Invigorated, Interconnected and Inclusive World Economy."

On the sidelines of the upcoming summit of the world's premier platform for international economic cooperation, which is to open Sunday, Obama is also scheduled to hold talks with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping.

The latest meeting between the heads of state of the two largest economies in the world, "just as every strategic talk they have held in recent years, will produce a very positive and important influence on China-U.S. bilateral relations," Cui Tiankai, China's ambassador to the United States, said earlier.
