英国是在中国投资的前五位。


Cameron's visit 'fruitful', says Chinese premier.

The Chinese premier, Wen Jiabao, has called David Cameron's visit to China "fruitful".

The two men met at a formal reception in the Great Hall of the People, as the prime minister arrived to take part in a trade mission to the country.

The United Kingdom is in top five for investing in China.

The visit is Britain's largest delegation to the country, and has been called a "vitally important trade mission" by Mr Cameron.

It is his first visit as prime minister to the world's second largest economy.

Promising "closer engagement" with China, he has said "banging the drum for trade" is key to UK foreign policy.

"Our message is simple: Britain is now open for business, has a very business-friendly government, and wants to have a much, much stronger relationship with China," he said.

Among those taking part in the visit are executives from companies including Rolls-Royce, Barclays and Diageo and some deals have already been announced.

Chancellor George Osborne, "China is reaching a stage of its economic development where it is more likely to want the kinds of things Britain is good at."
Business Secretary Vince Cable, who arrived in Beijing ahead of the prime minister, has already signed an agreement that will allow the export of British breeding pigs to China, home to half of the world's pig population.

That deal - and future business stemming from the agreement - is valued at about £45m to the British pig industry over the next five years.

The Chinese and British authorities also reached a deal to ensure only whisky produced in Scotland would be marketed in China as scotch, a move some estimate will increase sales by tens of millions of pounds.

Some of the other deals include:

three multi-million pound contracts with a fee value of more than £4m for London-based architects and designers Benoy
an agreement between Clyde Blowers and Yima Coal Industry Group to supply coal injection technology for three gasifiers - a deal worth £2m
machine maker Group Rhodes is signing a contract with Xinhang, a second-tier supplier to the Chinese aerospace industry, worth £1.8m.
'Huge opportunity'

Mr Cameron's first stop after landing at Beijing airport was a Tesco supermarket, where he met staff and shoppers.

China has 99 outlets of the British store, which first opened in the country in 2004 and is planning a £2bn investment over the next five years.

Tesco's executive director Lucy Neville-Rolfe, who is part of the business delegation, said: "China obviously represents a huge opportunity for growth, with large numbers of consumers and a government which thinks that expanding internal consumption is important."

Chancellor George Osborne has said that this is not a new chapter in British relations with China, but that the country had reached a stage in its development where it was "more likely to want the things which Britain is good at".

These included financial services, insurance and luxury goods, he added.

Currently, exports to China, although growing fast, are relatively small compared with other markets. For example, the UK exports twice as much to the Irish Republic as to China.

David Cameron urges China to embrace democracy

David Cameron: "There's no secret we disagree on some issues especially human rights... we don't raise these to make us look good"

David Cameron has called for closer trading ties between Europe and China - but said the UK still had "deeply-held concerns" over human rights.

Please see video of the speech.

LOL. I don't know why these people even bother with 'democracy' and 'human rights' anymore. Who is this guy trying to impress? These few years have seen so many 'democratic' nations and ones with good human rights record do some really undemocratic things, ie the Australian election, war in Iraq, democratic nations screwing up the world economy etc.

Don't really like it when nations try to attract 'positive' publicity by attacking China when they do the same things or things that are worse.

A good lifestyle is one where people have enough income to survive and buy things they want, to live happily with their family and to be able to do things they want ( I do feel china needs to relax some of their policies). All these things don't require democracy as such really.

But yes, it goes to show that nations like US and Britain can't resist from imposing their ideologies to other nations. Talk about control......

We'll talk about that when the communists in China can't provide growth of 10% anymore. :)

totally agree. Democracy has been proven to be deficient and they're still trying to teach the pagan masses worldwide about it, even when it doesn't cause anything except a huge, politically polarized mess

You mean next year? Because the goverment intends to go from a high GDP growth pattern, which was needed in the beginning, to a slower, more inclusive GDP growth that will boost domestic consumption. This is according to the latest 5th year plan. If I recall correctly, the target GDP growth rate will be 7-8% :)

US uses the "democracy" tool in order to weaken China.

Everybody knows it.


Even the Dalai Lama was paid by United States.

Please return the antiques and treasures plundered and stolen by UK since 1840, then we can talk about democracy!
There is a news lately some asians (chinese, I believe ?) bought an ancient vase from Christie auction for about US$69 million. IMO, this is a stupid purchase they made. Not only that vase might had been stolen, and now has to buy exorbitant price to get it back into the hand of chinese? Or am I wrong in this case?

The difficulty to get all treasure that they have looted, those antiques might have been in the hands of very powerful person like Rothschild or Queen Elizabeth.

Cameron lecture about democracy has little to do with China. It is more for the home audience. If he doesn't, he would be condemned at home, by the press. He had enough trouble with 50,000 university students rampaging through the Tory office headquarter.


The fact is that China does not really need Britain, and it is the British leader who came to China with big business entourage pleading the Chinese for contracts, financing etc. I think the Chinese are just being nice to him, knowing that he is new to the trade.
