John Shimmin, Minister for Economic Development of Isle of Man, had a sit-down interview with China Daily during his visit to China in Beijing on Tuesday.

"The Isle of Man would like to forge a strong business and trading tie with the Chinese market and we have a unique value proposition for the Chinese business community and outward investors," emphasized the minister during the video interview.

The high-powered government and business delegation of the Isle of Man is visiting China in a bid to build up new commercial relations and opportunities with China, the second largest economy in the world.

The Isle of Man is situated in the centre of the British Isles. It is a self-governing dependent territory of the British Crown. It is not part of the UK but is a member of the British Commonwealth. It is not a member of the EU, yet it has full EU market access for both manufactured and agricultural goods.
