The Chinese Premier, Li Keqiang, is heading to the UK on Monday for a summit meeting with Prime Minister David Cameron.
Mr Li is China's second most senior politician and - given the country's growing economic clout - trade and investment will be high on the agenda.
It comes as China is pouring more and more money into British infrastructure developments.
