In this video, Tom Tugendhat, chairman of the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee and head of the China Research Group, invited Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles, Chair of CBBC, to discuss the UK’s policy towards China.
Emphasising that China is a very important market for UK jobs, and the British economy, Sir Sherard highlighted CBBC’s view that bilateral engagement should be based on a clear-eyed, evidence-based evaluation of what is in the British national interest. He stressed that CBBC and its members are keen to see a comprehensive China strategy that protects our vital national security interests, that promotes British values, but also delivers for Britain post-COVID, Post-Brexit, the benefits of a sensible and balanced commercial engagement with a vast and growing economy with a middle class of 800 million people.
