Italian PM meets top Beijing leaders
(06-12 14:52)

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi met with top central government leaders, the latest European leader to beat a path to Beijing's door hoping to attract more investment.
Mr Renzi, 39, former mayor of Florence, met with President Xi Jinping, Premier Li Keqiang and National People's Congress Chairman Zhang Dejiang on his first trip to China since becoming Italy's youngest-ever prime minister in February.
"Many people think efficiency (in Italy) is not so good and China has grown very fast, so we need to study China," Mr Renzi said after a meeting at which he and Mr Li signed 10 agreements, including a deal for Shanghai Electric to buy a 40 percent stake in Italian power engineering company Ansaldo Energia.
"We need to work hard to attract more Chinese companies to come to Italy to invest," he added. "Today, these agreements signify the new road." --RTHK
