He also said that the UK will enhance negotiations related to investment protection between China and the Europe, as well as conduct research to improve free-trade between the two sides.

Cameron said he is looking forward to Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit in October, adding the all departments in the UK are standing by, hoping to show the UK-China cooperative achievements and bright prospects.

Foreign Minister Wang also highlighted the future visit of Xi, saying it will become a milestone of two countries' ties. "We should prepare more for the visit, ensure it goes smoothly and guide our relations into a golden age," he added.
