Boris to lead trade delegation to China

Mayor Boris Johnson will lead a trade mission to China next week.

It's part of his continued drive to promote London to the world as a major investment destination.

The Mayor will be joined by a senior delegation representing London's business community during the six day trip.

His mission to forge closer ties with China will see him meeting with business leaders, key investors and senior politicians from China, which is now the world's second largest economy.

The trip comes just days after the mayor gave his backing to a £500 million investment by Zhong Rong Group to rebuild The Crystal Palace.
