  • Description

    China and Britain have agreed in principle to try to raise the level of their trade in both directions between eight and ten billion dollars by 1985, an official British Government announcement said on Thursday (16 November). At present their trade is under 400 million dollars a year.

    SYNOPSIS: The agreement was reached in talks at Number 10 Downing Street, between Britain's Prime Minister, Mr. James Callaghan, and China's Vice Premier, Mr. Wang Chen. Their agreement will lead to increased economic co-operation, with the trade level being stepped up by both sides. Mr. Callaghan and Mr. Wang had talks over Chinese tea at the end of Mr. Wang's ten-day official visit.

    Mr. Callaghan had told parliament earlier that Britain wanted a high level of civilian trade with China, and did not wish to be regarded just as her arms supplier.
