China is one of the largest investing countries and a leading importer of British producers with a well-known interest among consumers in British education and properties. Demands for cooperation with British technological sectors, innovations, creative industries and service industries including healthcare and elderly care are on the rise exponentially.

The transformation of Chinese economy from investment and export-led to a more balanced economy with consumption and service-led growth to supplement competitive manufacturing sectors will continue to generate new opportunities for years to come.

At the end of 2015, China and UK upgraded the relationship of the two countries to Global Comprehensive Strategic Partnership in the view of opportunities for both countries to work together in the world. China is now a leading force in the globalisation with its Belt and Road strategy helping to build and connect trade infrastructures across Southeast Asia, the Southeast Asia and parts of Europe.
