BEIJING — British Prime Minister David Cameron is set to visit Beijing next week at the head of the largest official British delegation to travel to the country, China's Foreign Ministry said Tuesday.
Cameron will meet with leading officials including President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao during his two-day stay in the Chinese capital, ministry spokesman Hong Lei said.
He will be accompanied by his finance, energy, education and commerce ministers during the Nov. 9-10 visit, Hong said.
"This has important meaning to the development of China and Britain's long-term relations," Hong said.
Cameron's office declined to comment on the trip, saying information might be made available later in the week.
