Analysing the importance of the Chinese State Visit

Ruth Tarrant

21st October 2015

Looking closely at the ins and outs of this week's Chinese State Visit to the UK is a great way of bringing much of the politics syllabus to life. A great place to start is this BBC News analysis - scroll down to near the bottom for a clear, succinct video primer on the history of UK-China relations. There is also a useful summary of President Xi's background and rise to power, plus an outline of the State Visit plans, here. In addition, a great way to spend a spare hour would be to watch this week's Panorama, The Xi Factor - available on iPlayer until October 2016.
