Ambassador Liu Xiaoming Talks with Lionel Barber, Editor of the Financial Times

On February 20, 2018, Ambassador Liu Xiaoming held talks at the Chinese Embassy with Lionel Barber, Editor of the Financial Times (FT), as well as Gideon Rachman, FT Chief Foreign Affairs Commentator, James Lamont, FT Managing Editor, Ben Hall, FT World Editor, and James Kynge, FT Emerging Markets Editor.

Ambassador Liu said that the 19th National Congress of CPC which outlined the blueprint and general direction for China's future development was a milestone in China's long-term development and will bring more opportunities and benefits to the world. Last year China and Britain jointly celebrated the 45th anniversary of the establishment of ambassadorial diplomatic relations between the two countries. Early this year, Prime Minister May paid a successful visit to China. The leaders of the two countries reached an important consensus on enhancing the "Golden Era" of China-UK relations. With the fruitful outcomes on cooperation in all fields between the two countries, the strategic, pragmatic, global and inclusive nature of China-UK relationship is even more prominent.

The Ambassador pointed out that the Financial Times, as one of the mainstream newspapers in Britain and an important international media organization, has followed the major events in China in various fields such as politics, economy, diplomacy and social affairs, and helped the world understand China. He hoped that the Financial Times will keep the overall picture of China's development in mind and report on China in a comprehensive, objective, fair and balanced way so as to foster better understanding of a real China among the UK and Western public and contribute positive energy to the development of China-UK relations and the mutual learning between the East and West.

Barber said that the Financial Times attaches great importance to reporting on and cooperating with China and strives to cover China in all aspects, such as politics, economy, culture and society. It will continue to work for better China-UK relations and mutual understanding between East and West.

The two sides also exchanged views on international issues of common interest.
