BEIJING, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- Premier Wen Jiabao will attend and address the opening ceremony of the sixth Annual Meeting of the New Champions, also known as the Summer Davos Forum, on Sept. 11 in the northern Chinese port city of Tianjin.

The Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei announced the news Tuesday.

Several foreign leaders, including Rwandan President Paul Kagame, Pakistani Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf, Lithuanian Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius, Latvian Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis, Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Costa Rica's Vice President Jack Lieberman and Zimbabwe's Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara, will attend the forum.

Hong said Wen will meet the foreign leaders and World Economic Forum chairman Klaus Schwab, and talk with representatives of entrepreneurs.

He said China hoped the forum, with the theme of "shaping the future economy," can be a platform for people to discuss the main problems of global economy, and send positive signals to promote world economy recovery.

The forum was created according to a joint proposal by the Geneva-based World Economic Forum (WEF) and the Chinese government. Northern Chinese port cities of Dalian and Tianjin have hosted the forum in turn since 2007. Most viewed commentaries
