British Prime Minister David Cameron has answered several questions from Chinese netizens through through the Internet and published it on his newly-opened Sina Weibo account.
British Prime Minister David Cameron said his purpose in visiting China was to make sure there are good and strong relations between Britain and China.
Druing his visit in China, he met with Chinese leaders, including the president and premier, and brought representatives from British businesses, museums, and universities to share information and build strong relationships with their counterparts in China. These relationships include trade and business to foster "a win-win situation" for all.
Cameron said there is a great opportunity for British-Chinese cooperation as urbanization develops in China, especially in smaller cities.
In the next 18 years, another 13 million people each year are expected to move to China's cities, Cameron said.
"I think it is a big opportunity to try and make sure the lessons learned in the past and mistakes in the past aren't repeated" as new and larger cities develop, he said.
He noted a British firm that is helping with hospital services in new, small Chinese cities.
"There are many opportunities for town planning, architecture, services and also opportunities to build in a greener and more environmentally friendly way," the prime minister said.
