India and China can take a leading role in the technology industry if they put aside their historic differences and work together.

The comments came from China's Prime Minister Wen Jiabao as he visited Bangalore.

"Cooperation is just like two pagodas, one hardware and one software. Combined, we can take the leadership position in the world," Jiabao told AP. The PM called on Indian software firms to work with Chinese hardware manufacturers. He said such cooperation would create an "Asian century of the IT industry".

India and China are expected to sign 30 agreements covering business and cultural matters. The two sides are also hoping to resolve disagreements over their mutual border. Relations have been frosty as China is a big military supplier to Pakistan.
