PM Donald Tusk began the first visit in fourteen years of a Polish
head of state to China today.

He is in the country for the Polish-Chinese Shanghai Forum to discuss
economic cooperation.

Tusk will meet, tomorrow, with Chinese president Hu Jintao and his
Prime Minister Wen Jiabao.

The Polish PM stated that, besides generating increased economic
cooperation between the two countries, he hopes to have the
opportunity to discuss Tibet and human rights issues.

Friday begins the seventh two-day Asia-Europe meeting (ASEM), a forum
to create dialogue and partnership between the regions. Tusk will
lead the Polish delegation.

The head of Polish-Chinese Chamber of Economics, Sylwester Szafarz
told Polish Radio that the possibilities from a cooperation between
the two countries are enormous. The main areas of cooperation to be
negotiated are coal factories, environmental protection, energy and tourism.

Currently, Poland exports several times more goods to China than the reverse.

Regarding infrastructure, Szafarz added that Poland could become a
major tourist force if negotiations regarding China developing
Poland's infrastructure come to fruition.

China is Poland's largest trading partner in Asia.
