The UK-China relationship is strong, growing, and delivering benefits for both countries. The government’s aims and objectives include increasing bilateral trade and investment across the UK, as well as cooperating on matters of global importance such as health, climate change, development, and regional security. Maintaining strong people to people links in areas such as tourism, education and culture is also important. At the same time, our strong partnership allows us to have frank discussions on issues where we disagree.
