Given the priorities we share, we expect there to be a busy programme of visits to and from China over the next year. We have over 40 regular dialogues with China at both ministerial and official level, covering a range of issues from the economy to human rights, including a summit between Prime Minister and the Chinese Premier and an economic and financial dialogue led by the Chancellor of the Exchequer and his counterpart in the State Council. We also anticipate the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), will hold his annual strategic dialogue with State Councillor Yang later this year.
