Trade Promotion: China

Volume 505: debated on Wednesday 10 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what steps his Department has taken to promote high technology and value-added (a) manufacturing and (b) services from Wales in China in the last five years. (315791)

Promoting Welsh exports is principally the responsibility of the Welsh Assembly Government through International Business Wales.

The Welsh Assembly Government's activity in China is demand led and, in recent years, its trade missions and International Trade Opportunities programme has focused on general activity in response to the needs of its clients. However, through their association with the China Britain Business Council, the Welsh Assembly Government remains well placed to help companies with specific interest in high technology opportunities.
