China's Prime Minister Promises Steps To Boost Uk Trade

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-13918113

China's Prime Minister Wen Jiabao has pledged to take measures to increase trade between Britain and China.

Mr Wen, who is on a three-day visit, said he wanted to welcome more UK products into China.

He also said he would like to see more enterprises based on the model used by the MG car plant at Longbridge, which designs and assembles in the UK, with parts made in China.

The Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt said China offered "huge opportunities".

Mr Wen visited the plant, once the site of Britain's mass-car manufacturing, which is now owned by the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC).

Mr Hunt said it was important to have a full dialogue with China.

Up to £1bn worth of business deals are expected to be announced during Mr Wen's three-day UK tour.

Well that's the national debt taken care of then... :ph34r:

Not quite sure what we can export to China.

[Not quite sure what we can export to China.

Being as they have huge tariffs on all our goods not a lot ... lift this have a bit of free trade and see what happens.

Had to laugh when the reporter on ITV said China is a huge investor in Britain .... just a pity our trade deficit with China shows otherwise.

Kidneys?

Unless you're talking fray bentos pies type kidneys it will be no good as Asian tissue types are different to those of Europeans.

They also have a very cheap source of organs as those under the penalty of death forfeit their bodies as well.

There is more than a grain of truth when wealthy but sick people and brokers of organs visit death row in China (which is more like a work death camp) and pick out the condemed to have their organs harvested THEN the life support gets turned off.

There was a bit about this on Countryfile this evening. Markets for (quality) British Beef. However it was pointed out it was no good selling the Chinese Aberdeen Angus steaks as Chinese are taught to appreciate the whole animal, including organ meats, which we (stupidly) tend to turn our nose up at . So it was suggested selling the Chinese the "good" bits of the animal, ie:organ meats.

Great so UK people can also expect to see cars with parts made in China selling in the UK at Chinese prices. That would be good. All the UK has to do now is get UK house prices down to competitive levels to help to reduce the UK labour component..

Sir Mervyn Fonejacker King of the VIs and out of control UK inflation might likely disagree.
