Mandelson China trip nets $500m

UK Trade &amp; Investment, the government body that fights for overseas trade, has said Lord Mandelson&rsquo;s visit to China has netted $500m (&pound;302m) worth of deals for British businesses. The body said the business secretary&rsquo;s visit has made a slew of contracts and new investment deals possible, as the UK&rsquo;s low carbon industry becomes increasingly attractive to the Asian giant. &ldquo;Across the board, the UK can offer the knowledge, technology and experience to help our two economies de-carbonise,&rdquo; Mandelson said on the visit. <br />
