Premier Li Qiang said China would include Australia in its visa-waiver program to fast-track access to the key business and tourism destination.

The change would allow Australian tourists visa-free entry into China for up to 15 days, a saving of about $110.

The visa change was announced at Parliament House late Monday after Qiang held high-level talks with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.

Qiang will spend his final day in Australia on Tuesday in Western Australia having meetings with business and community leaders.

In Perth, Li will visit a lithium plant before attending an Australia-China CEO roundtable event.

The roundtable will involve representatives from major Australian companies including Wesfarmers, Rio Tinto, ANZ and Fortescue meeting to discuss economic opportunity and free-trade agreements between the two countries.

Li will also visit Fortescue's research and development facility in Perth.
