"Poland wants to strengthen economic ties with Asian countries. The summit will be a good opportunity to talk about cooperation", said Polish government spokesman Rafał Bochenek.
Szydło is to deliver an address at a plenary session of the summit, which takes place on Friday and Saturday.
Bochenek said the Polish prime minister would urge closer business ties with Asian countries along with "translating this into concrete actions."
ASEM member countries account for 50 percent of global GDP, 60 percent of international trade and 60 percent of the world's population.
