STOCKHOLM, April 23 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao's visit to Sweden will further boost bilateral relations, Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt said, pointing out that both sides will ink a package of agreements.

"We have recently intensified our cooperation in a number of areas including innovation, research and development, trade, culture and sustainable development," Reinfeldt said in a recent written interview with Xinhua.

He said that during Premier Wen's visit, the two sides will sign a series of agreements in such areas as environmental protection and energy conservation.

Reinfeldt said bilateral relations have strengthened and developed in a wide range of areas since the two countries established diplomatic ties in 1950. "Exchanges are on-going between our governments, universities, businesses and through people-to-people contact," he said.

"China is Sweden's largest trading partner in Asia and our trade is steadily increasing. There are around 10,000 Swedish companies which trade with China and around 500 Swedish companies established in China," said Reinfeldt, adding that so all in all, the relations are developing in a positive way.

Besides, Reinfeldt stressed that Sweden and China will discuss how to further develop the partnership in the field of sustainable development - an area where many countries see important challenges when trying to combine economic growth with care for environment and climate.
