Mandelson promotes UK in China

Business secretary Lord Mandelson is currently leading a delegation of UK businessmen to China to forge better business relations between the two countries on a range of issues, particularly on low carbon economic development. Mandelson will meet with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and other senior government ministers and business organisations on the trip. “China is an exciting market for UK business, especially in sectors where we have a comparative advantage such as low carbon companies,” he said. “My challenge is to promote British exports, encourage Chinese investment in the UK and continue to strengthen our good working relations with the Chinese government.”
