According to a report in thepaper.cn, the signing of a cooperation agreement between Bank of China, China Xiong'an Construction & Investment Group, and Britain's Canary Wharf Group was witnessed by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and visiting British Prime Minister Theresa May in Beijing on January 31.

The Ministry of Commerce said in a statement that China and Britain signed deals worth nine billion pounds during Prime Minister May's visit last week for the construction, finance, agriculture, and technology industries.
