British Prime Minister Theresa May to Visit China
2018/01/25

On 25th January 2018, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying announces at the regular press conference:

At the invitation of Premier Li Keqiang, Prime Minister Theresa May of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland will pay an official visit to China from January 31 to February 2 and hold a new round of annual China-UK Prime Ministers' meeting.

The spokesperson also remarks on the upcoming visit in terms of the schedule and China's expectation of it.

She says that the year of 2017 marked the 45th anniversary of the establishment of China-UK ambassadorial diplomatic ties, and it was also a year of in-depth development of the Golden Era of China-UK relations. During their meeting at the sidelines of the G20 Hamburg Summit, President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Theresa May reached important consensus on developing the China-UK relations in the next stage. Premier Li Keqiang and Prime Minister Theresa May also exchanged congratulatory letters with each other on the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties at ambassadorial level, reaffirming their shared aspiration to develop bilateral relations.

This visit marks the first annual China-UK Prime Ministers' meeting following President Xi Jinping's historic state visit to the UK in 2015, when the two countries announced the launching of the China-UK global comprehensive strategic partnership for the 21st century and the Golden Era of China-UK relations. It is also Prime Minister May's first official visit to China after she took office, thus of important significance to the development of China-UK relations. During the visit, Chinese leaders will meet and hold talks with Prime Minister May on separate occasions and exchange in-depth views on regional and international issues of mutual concern. Prime Minister May will also visit Shanghai and Wuhan, Hubei Province.

China highly values its relations with the UK. We hope to, taking this visit as an opportunity, further step up the political mutual trust and expand across-the-board mutually beneficial cooperation between the two sides and achieve new development of the China-UK global comprehensive strategic partnership for the 21st century.
