Liberal Democrat Business Secretary Vince Cable flew to Beijing today to begin three days of intensive trade talks between the UK and China.

Ahead of the trip business deals between British companies and China worth millions of pounds were announced.

"These talks take the relationship between the UK and China to a new level. I warmly congratulate those companies which have announced deals today," Dr Cable said.

"China is a huge opportunity for UK businesses and I would urge more companies to follow in their footsteps. China is our ninth largest export market, but it is the world's second largest economy and the potential for expanding our partnership is huge."
