Issues like counter-terrorism and the global financial crisis will also come for up discussion.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has today said that he will visit China from 3rd to 5th September to attend the BRICS Summit.
"We had raised it (terrorism) in Goa summit and sure it will revisit us in this summit as well", said Preeti Saran, secretary (east), MEA on Sunday, hours before the PM was scheduled to fly out to Xiamen in China where the annual Brics meet is being held this year.
The Prime Minister added he is looking forward to visiting the famed heritage city of Bagan, where the Archaeological Survey of India has renovated the Ananda Temple, and will be undertaking further restoration work on a number of pagodas and murals that were damaged in last year's natural disaster.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will rejig his Cabinet before he leaves for China on Sunday to attend BRICS summit. Arun Jaitley, who now holds the charge of two portfolios - Finance and Defence, may retain only one.
China has also said that it is routine to arrange bilateral meetings during multilateral conferences and will make proper arrangements when the time is right.
The BRICS business forum is expected to gather a record 1,200 participants, including representatives from almost 80 Fortune 500 multinationals, said Jiang Zengwei, head of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, at a press conference.
"It is in the interests of all sides to strengthen cooperation among emerging markets and developing countries through the BRICS platform", Jiang said. Many read these comments as an oblique reference to China's opposition to India's bid to have Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar recognized as a "globally designated terrorist".
BRICS is the acronym for an association of five major emerging national economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
"The world is paying great attention to the BRICS summit". Later, the prime minister will visit Myanmar to boost bilateral ties from 5th to 7th September. Apart from his engagements in the capital city of Nay Pyi Taw, he will also visit Yangon and Bagan and address the Indian community in Myanmar. Agreements in various sectors such as maritime security, health, capacity building and enhancing cultural cooperation are likely to be signed.
