China Pictorial (English) - - EXPRESS | NEWS - VCG

Fe­bru­ary 1, Bei­jing: Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May and her hus­band Philip May visit the Palace Mu­seum, also known as the For­bid­den City.

Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping met with the Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter at the Diaoyu­tai State Guest­house and called on both coun­tries to forge an en­hanced ver­sion of the “golden era” of bi­lat­eral ties.

May noted that in 2015, the “golden era” of United King­dom-china re­la­tions com­menced af­ter Xi made a suc­cess­ful state visit to the UK. Bri­tain sup­ports free trade and would like to en­hance prac­ti­cal co­op­er­a­tion with China in trade, in­vest­ment, sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy, en­vi­ron­ment, cul­ture, and the in­ter­net, she said.

May started her visit in Wuhan on Jan­uary 31. In Bei­jing, she took part in the China-bri­tain an­nual meet­ing be­tween heads of gov­ern­ment with Premier Li Ke­qiang at the Great Hall of the Peo­ple.

China and Bri­tain signed a dozen deals in ar­eas in­clud­ing trade, fi­nance, health­care, and smart city tech­nol­ogy, pledg­ing to fur­ther pro­mote the “golden era” of their strate­gic part­ner­ship.
