British Prime Minister David Cameron attended a welcome ceremony hosted by his Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang in Beijing on Monday (December 2, 2013). The two leaders inspected the guard of honour before sitting down for talks at the Great Hall of the People. Later, Cameron held talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing in the hopes of boosting trade with the world's second biggest economy. The two shook hands before attending a meeting at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse with both Chinese and British delegations present. Before his trip, Cameron said he wanted to lay the ground for a multi-billion-dollar free trade deal between Beijing and the European Union, despite growing unease about his own country's membership of the bloc. On a three-day visit with a delegation of around 100 business people, the largest British mission of its kind, Cameron said he wanted his country to play an important role in China's expansion as the world's second biggest economy is talking about opening up its markets.
