Chinese Premier Li Keqiang is now in Greece following a three-day visit to the UK.

He has already met with Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras to discuss bilateral ties.

Li Keqiang has also suggested China and Greece can work together in exploring new economic growth points, particularly in maritime cooperation.

"Certainly the global economic recovery still has many uncertainties and faces many challenges. I agree with Mr. Samaras that the two sides can make joint efforts to make the port of Piraeus a transportation hub. Such cooperation will be beneficial for Chinese-Greek relations and Chinese-European relations, and of course benefit the global economic recovery."

Part of his schedule in Greece is to hold the first-ever maritime cooperation forum between the two countries.

The Premier is expected to oversee the signing of more than 20 new deals, mostly covering investment, trade and finance.

For more Sino-Greek ties, CRI's Zheng Chengguang spoke earlier with Professor Pantelis Sklias, head of the Department of Political Science and International Relations at the University of Peloponnese in Greece.
