Chinese Premier Seeks Stronger Economic Ties with India

China's prime minister says his country and India need to establish stronger economic ties.

In a speech to business leaders on a visit to New Delhi Tuesday, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said that strengthening economic cooperation will lead to growth in both countries.

On Monday, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Mr. Li agreed to resolve a border dispute and other tensions. Mr. Singh said both sides must work to strengthen trust and confidence to create better cooperation.

Premier Li, on a three-day visit to India, is expected to visit the nation's financial hub of Mumbai to meet top executives.



China says placing India first on the itinerary of its new premier demonstrates the importance Beijing places on the relationship between the two countries.

China is India's largest trading partner.

After India, Mr. Li is set to visit Pakistan, Switzerland and Germany in an effort to carry the message that China wants more open relations and should not be seen as a threat.
