Foreign Secretary’s Trip to China

Asked if the Foreign Secretary would raise the issue of China trading with Iran during his trip, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) said that the focus of this trip was on building the relationship between the UK and China – a country with a large and fast-growing economy. The issue of promoting trade was something that the Prime Minister had been keen to emphasise at the G8 and G20 recently, and he had been emphasising to all his Ministers that there should be a collective effort in building trade links with other countries. This was not just a Foreign Office issue, this was an issue for all departments and they should all be promoting British business interests when meeting with representatives from other countries.
