The Chinese ambassador to the UK, Liu Xiaoming, is currently visiting Jersey to attend a series of meetings with senior officials and representatives from the financial services industry to explore opportunities for mutual cooperation.Xiaoming is being welcomed by Jersey's Chief Minister, Ian Gorst. Over the coming days he will attend meetings with the Minister for External Relations, Philip Bailhache, the Minister for Economic Development, Alan Maclean, and representatives from the financial services industry.
Speaking ahead of the visit, Gorst said: "It will be a pleasure to be able to introduce the Ambassador and his wife to Jersey. Official visits of this kind support the creation of new business links with China, and they are also an opportunity to showcase Jersey's history and heritage, as well as the world-class professional services that we offer."
The visit builds on Gorst's visit to China in April this year, when a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Jersey Financial Services Commission and the China Securities Regulatory Commission.
