Last Friday Conservative Future were invited to take part in a roundtable discussion with the Chinese Ambassador and his embassy officials as part of the EU-China Year of Youth. Other youth groups from political parties were invited to contribute to this discussion including; Liberal Youth, the Young Fabians and Young Labour. The discussion was stimulating, interesting and heated and looked at issues from educational links that both the EU and China can have to a topical debate on resolving climate change.
Conservative Future’s Chairman Ben Howlett spoke on trade relations between the two countries: “Chinese-British trade relations have never been stronger and we want to see that continue and grow in the future. Younger people rely on a growing economy and a growth in trade between our two nations will result in more jobs for both of our economies.”
We would like to thank the Chinese Embassy and his excellency Ambassador Lui Xiaoming for his kind invitation to this event.
