UK Hammond to China: We’re a firm supporter of trade liberalization and your long-term trusted partner

UK Chancellor of Exchequer Philip Hammond wrote in an article in China’s financial magazine Caixin, saying the the globalized UK is China’s long term partner. Hammond is visiting Beijing this week and he pledges to “convey a message to the outside world – as a firm supporter of trade liberalization and a free market, the United Kingdom is China’s long-term trusted partner.”

Also, he wrote “Britain is committed to promoting free and open trade, and as Britain and its European cooperation partners form a new relationship, we will deepen our relations with other regions around the world.” And, there was “enormous development space” with cooperation with Chinese financial services businesses. Hammond also hailed that UK is an “ideal cooperation partner” to the Belt and Road initiative, and they would likely to ” grasp the unlimited opportunities” and “take a lead in its financing work.”

This is Hammond’s article in simplified Chinese (gated). We’ve yet to find the English version.
