BUDAPEST, Nov. 27 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said Monday that Beijing is ready to work with Warsaw to step up win-win cooperation in various fields.

In a meeting here with Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo, Li said he hoped that both sides would tap the full potential of the intergovernmental cooperation committee in managing various exchanges and cooperation between the two countries and get more things done.

China is willing to enhance communication and coordination on international affairs with Poland, which is elected to become a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council next year, Li added.

Meanwhile, China stands ready to align its development strategies with the Polish side and deepen cooperation in such fields as transportation, logistics and infrastructure, said the Chinese premier.

China will open up even wider and create better conditions for the two countries to deepen cooperation in economy, trade and between the enterprises of the two sides, he said.

Noting that China will host its first International Import Expo next year, Li said his country welcomes Poland to take it as an opportunity for stronger promotion efforts of its exports to China, and help develop a more balanced two-way trade for win-win results.

For her part, Szydlo said Poland attaches great importance to relations with China. Her country hopes to give full play to the intergovernmental cooperation committee, explore cooperation in economy, trade and investment, and strengthen mutually beneficial cooperation in infrastructure, logistics and agriculture.

The 16+1 cooperation mechanism is a helpful complement to bilateral relations and is beneficial to the development of Poland and other Central and Eastern European countries, she said, vowing to work with the Chinese side to push for greater outcome of the 16+1 cooperation.

Li arrived in Budapest Sunday for the sixth meeting of heads of government of China and 16 Central and Eastern European countries and an official visit to Hungary.
