Chen Mingming, former Chinese ambassador to Sweden, said that the Prince’s visit to China marks a boost to the China-UK friendship. The visit to China conveys London’s sincerity in building long-term friendship with China through cultural communication. Prime Minister Cameron also mentioned in his New Year speech that the year of sheep will see more cultural exchanges between the two countries.

During Premier Li Keqiang’s visit to the UK in 2014, the two sides released a joint statement on the decision to build a strategic partnership. Since then, this decade has witnessed a warming in Sino-British relations. Experts noted that fortifying the cultural cooperation between the two countries will also promote China-EU relations in the future.
