Reuters publishes exclusive Q&A with Chinese President Xi Jinping. The article reports that Xi arrives in Britain on Monday for a state visit at the invitation of Queen Elizabeth II, the first state visit to the United Kingdom by a Chinese leader since 2005.

These questions and answers are a recommended read, as this is no ordinary state visit.

Whilst the state-visit has been carefully orchestrated to be win-win, it remains to be seen if Jeremy Corbyn will damage the effectiveness of the visit.

Personally, I worry about the extent to which the UK’s strategic interests have been evaluated. See the NYT’s article questioning whether Britain has put trade before national security.

Thoughts?
