China has been one of few countries which has stood by Pakistan amid growing criticism over whether Pakistan was complicit in harbouring Bin Laden.
This has given added importance to this week’s visit to Beijing by Pakistan’s Prime Minster Yusuf Raza Gilani.
Trade between the two countries is increasing significantly. It reached $8.6bn (£5.3bn) last year, an increase of nearly 30% compared to 2009.
Mr Munir Shaikh, Chairman of Abbott Pakistan and India says Pakistan appreciates China’s support.
