BEIJING - Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff arrived here Monday kicking off a six-day state visit to China.

During the visit, Rousseff will hold talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao. She will also meet with top legislator Wu Bangguo and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao.

Rousseff and Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan will attend a seminar between Chinese and Brazilian entrepreneurs.

Rousseff will also attend the third BRICS summit, grouping leaders from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, and the annual meeting of the Boao Forum for Asia, both slated for mid-April in China's southern island province of Hainan.

In a recent exclusive interview with Xinhua before she travelled to China, Rousseff emphasized Brazil's interest in deepening the existing strategic partnership between Brazil and China.

She said China was a strategic partner of Brazil "in all areas" and the China-Brazil relationship based on reciprocity would allow the two countries to gain mutual benefits in strategic sectors.
