China has also pledged to implement a more proactive and effective fiscal policy this year, although monetary policy will be more prudent and neutral to prevent asset bubbles and financial risks.

Taiwan would also be high up on the agenda of a meeting between the two presidents.

The summit is the first face- to-face meeting between the two leaders of the world's biggest economies.
