London Stock Exchange in China to drum up new listings interest

Lord Mayor of the City of London Fiona Woolf is on a tour of China
The London Stock Ex­change yesterday fronted a new issues conference in Beijing to try to en­courage Chinese firms to list in London.

The Lord Mayor of the City of London, Fiona Woolf, is leading a City delegation across China this weekend and spoke at the event, which was co-hosted by the China-Britain Business Council.

The event comes months after the Chinese internet group Alibaba chose New York for its listing, depriving the City of a major tech flotation.
