He Guoqiang, a senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC), arrived here on Tuesday evening, kicking off a four-day official visit to Poland.
He is a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the CPC.
“The primary aim of my visit is to promote political trust, deepen win-win economic cooperation, expand friendly exchanges, and strengthen the traditional friendship between China and Poland,” the Chinese leader said in a written statement issued upon arrival in Poland.
He added that he was looking forward to holding candid and in-depth talks with Polish leaders on bilateral relations and other issues of common concerns.

The Chinese leader left Paris for Warsaw earlier on Tuesday, wrapping up a four-day visit to France.
