​An upcoming visit to the UK by Chinese vice-premier of the State Council Ma Kai is an opportunity for representatives of the two countries to discuss shared business success in recent years, and chances for further growth in the future.

The meeting is due to take place between September 10th and 16th - during which time the Chinese delegate will also travel to France for a similar consultation.

It is the sixth China-UK Economic and Financial Dialogue, and the second French equivalent, and the UK will be represented by Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, along with other economic figures.

During the fifth Dialogue, which took place in October 2013, the UK and China agreed that signs of economic growth were returning both to advanced economies and in emerging markets.

They added that international collaboration would help to ensure continued improvement in areas such as job creation - and went on to look at some of the key industries in which the UK-China partnership excels.

Scientific research is among these, with the UK now China\'s second-biggest partner for academic co-publications, and more than £47 million spent on joint projects at that time.

British brands are finding success in China - from the sale of 72,000 Jaguar Land Rover vehicles in 2012, to the creation of a Stella McCartney boutique in Beijing in May 2013.

The special relationship between the two countries means employment opportunities are likely to continue, particularly in key industries where joint investment reaches high levels.
