'Trust China' -  that is the message Wen Jiabao, the Chinese premier, wants to send to Europe. He is on a five-day tour of the continent, visiting Britain, Germany and Hungary.

The Chinese leader is pledging his country's support for the Eurozone, which is stuck in a deepening debt crisis, and promising to open up China's markets to British products.

So why is Europe welcoming China's support now and who needs who the most?

Inside Story, with presenter Hazem Sika, discusses with guests: Jonathan Holslag, the head of research at the Brussels Institute of Contemporary China Studies; Jan Randolph, the head of Sovereign Risk at IHS Global Insight; and Lok Sang Ho, a professor of economics at Lingnan University, Hong Kong.

This episode of Inside Story aired from June 27, 2011.
