WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland’s prime minister has met with Chinese parliamentary leader Zhang Dejiang to discuss developing ties, including business and trade.

Poland, a central European nation, wants to play a key role in China’s drive to increase business with Europe. The Polish government is seeking new partners and investments for the economy as it develops quickly.

Beata Szydlo and Zhang Dejiang, who is the head of the Permanent Committee of China’s parliament, held talks Thursday.

Zhang is in Poland until Sunday and will also meet with President Andrzej Duda and Polish parliamentary leaders.

He is also to visit the southern Renaissance city of Krakow and the former Nazi German death camp of Auschwitz.
