"This will benefit the two peoples," Wen said during the talks with visiting Slovenian Prime Minister Borut Pahor.
Hailing the smooth development of China-Slovenia relations since forging diplomatic ties 18 years ago, Wen said the two peoples had enjoyed profound friendship.
China applauded Slovenia's adherence to the one-China policy, Wen said, hoping that Slovenia would continue playing a positive role in the European Union to promote EU-China relations.
Wen said China valued the economic and trade cooperation with Slovenia, and supported domestic businesses taking part in Slovenia's infrastructure construction and expanding investment there.
Wen hoped the two nations could expand exchanges in tourism and education to deepen mutual understanding between the two peoples.
Pahor spoke highly of China's remarkable achievements of development, believing that China would contribute more to promoting world peace and development.
