Thai Prme Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva met his Chinese counterpart Wen Jiabao Wednesday for talks in which Abhisit said he would focus on promoting trade and tourisn, German news agency DPA reported.

The two sides signed several bilateral cooperation agreements following the talks between the two premiers, state television reported without giving details of the agreements.

"China is a very important strategic partner of Thailand and I'm going to enhance the partnership and relationship between the two countries in very challenging times, when the world is facing a financial and economic crisis," Abhisit told China's official Xinhua news agency before leaving Bangkok.

"We set targets for 2010, in terms of volume of trade, in terms of the number of tourists, in terms of investment," the agency quoted him as saying.

The Thai premier is expected to ask China to lift its travel warning on Chinese tourists going to Thailand, which has been in place since violent protests scuttled a summit of South-East Asian leaders in April.

Abhisit, who arrived in Beijing earlier Wednesday, is also scheduled to meet President Hu Jintao during his four-day visit, and travel to the nearby port of Tianjin and the southern province of Guangdong.
