BEIJING, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- Premier Wen Jiabao's trip to the 10th Meeting of the Prime Ministers of the Member States of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) will lay a solid foundation for SCO cooperation in the next decade, Vice Foreign Minister Cheng Guoping said on Tuesday.

Cheng said at a press briefing that the SCO PM meeting will be significant for promoting the healthy and stable development of the organization, as well as development in the region in general.

He said Wen will attend the meeting from Nov. 6 to 8 and meet with leaders from participating countries.

The prime ministers of SCO member states, as well as representatives from the observer states of Mongolia, Pakistan, Iran and India will attend the meeting.

Officials from Afghanistan, Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Eurasian Economic Community and United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) were also invited to the meeting, Cheng said.

Cheng said the prime ministers of the member states will hold a smaller group meeting before joining an expanded discussion with all participants. Agreement-signing ceremonies and joint press conferences will also be on the agenda, he said.

Wen and leaders from the SCO member states will view the organization's development and cooperation over the past year, thoroughly analyze the current international and regional situation and make working plans for the SCO's next phase of development while taking the consensus reached at the Astana Summit into consideration, Cheng said.
