in ASIA/ECONOMY/POLITICS by

British Prime Minister Theresa May left China today with deals worth more than 9.3 billion pounds ($13.26 billion), at the end of a three-day trade mission where President Xi Jinping pledged to upgrade their “golden era” in relations. Britain, which is trying to reinvent itself as a global trading nation after Brexit, put China first on the list of countries that Britain wants to sign a free trade agreement with. China, for its part, sees Britain as an important ally in its call for more open global markets. Chinese investment is helping Britain develop infrastructure and create jobs, with some 50,000 British businesses importing goods from China and more than 10,000 sell their goods to China.
