Chinese premier Wen Jiabao flew into Birmingham Airport for the start of a three-day UK trip intended to boost commercial, economic and political links between the countries.

Birmingham's car manufacturing industry received a huge boost when China's Premier Wen Jiabao visited the MG plant in Longbridge on Sunday 26th June 2011.

Mr Wen launched the new MG6C Magnette model at the factory owned by the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation -- one of his country's most high-profile British investments.

China are looking to buy from the world and the fact they choose Birmingham and the region shows that the premier sees a lot of potential in Birmingham. This may lead to more investment into the city and also into the UK as a place to do business.

Reputedly a fan of William Shakespeare, he also visited the playwright's home-town Stratford near Birmingham and watched a short performance of his work.
