The likely trajectory of UK-China relations was explored during an Asia House briefing with Professor Kerry Brown, Director of the Lau China Institute, King’s College London, today (18 May).
Brown, one of the UK’s leading China experts, shared his takeaways from the UK’s recently-published Integrated Review, and how it could shape the future UK-China relationship. He also assessed the current state of bilateral economic relations, the broader global geopolitical environment, and recent policy trends in China.
The off-the-record briefing was convened exclusively for Asia House Corporate Members, who joined the discussion from around the world. Brown was asked a range of questions, including the potential direction of political rhetoric in the UK and China; the importance of the UK-China relationship for both countries; and Chinese consumer trends. Brown was also asked about global efforts to engage with China, and how the current tensions are being received in Beijing.
Chaired by Asia House Chief Executive Michael Lawrence, the briefing provided unique insights for Corporate Members on one of the biggest geopolitical issues of the day.
