British Prime Minister David Cameron visited the Victoria and Albert Museum on Nov 28, 2013 to see the exhibit, "Masterpieces of Chinese painting 700-1900."

The British PM will pay an official visit to China from Dec 2 to 4. He expressed his expectation to communicate with Chinese leaders in political, economic and cultural fields. Cameron said China and UK should seek cooperation in various fields and the areas of cooperation should not be limited.

He also said that he is studying the Chinese reform policy formulated during the CPC third plenary session and is seeking more opportunities for cooperation.

Britain is conducting the evaluation of a high-speed railway project from London to Birmingham and Cameron holds that high-speed rail has great potential for China-UK cooperation. He thinks highly of China's high-speed railway development and expects to take a ride during his visit to China.

According to the report, the upcoming visit will include British officials and 150 entrepreneurs. It is the largest group the UK has ever sent to China. Besides Beijing, Cameron will also visit Shanghai, Hanghzou and Chengdu. When asked about Chinese food, Cameron said he plans to sample Chengdu hotpot, as recommended by a Mandarin teacher.
