British Prime Minister, Theresa May, is on a three-day official visit to China where she is discussing trade and other important issues with Chinese leaders.
On Thursday she met with China’s President Xi Jinping and both leaders embraced what’s being called a “Golden Era” of bilateral ties between their countries.
And, as the United Kingdom gets closer to leaving the European Union, as part of its Brexit decision, developing a strong trading relationship with China is high on the Prime Minister’s priority list.
To discuss all of this:
- Cui Hongjian, Director of the Department for European Studies at the China Institute of International Studies.
- Tim Summers, Senior Consulting Fellow with the Asia Programme at Chatham House.
- Yu Jie, Head of China Foresight at LSE IDEAS, London School of economics.
- Stephen Perry, Chairman of the 48 Group Club.
