May’s ‘Productive’ China Trip
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.
