(01-22 15:03)

China-UK bilateral trade reached a record high in 2013, surpassing 70 billion U.S. dollars, the Chinese ambassador to the UK said on Tuesday at a business gathering.
"UK's export to China increased by 13.8 percent, much higher than China's other EU trade partners," said ambassador Liu Xiaoming during a reception hosted by the 48 Group Club to celebrate the upcoming Chinese lunar new year.
"Our relations have come to a fresh start. We face great opportunities that have never been seen before," said Liu, disclosing that Chinese investment in the UK over the past two years reached 13 billion U.S. dollars, exceeding the total of the previous three decades.
"The two countries' leaders reached a broad consensus on pushing forward bilateral relationship and expanding cooperation. China and the UK working together will benefit our people and contribute to global peace and development," said Li. Stephen Perry, Chairman of the 48 Group Club. --Xinhua
