Britain and China could sign deals worth more than US$30 billion this week during a visit to the UK by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, Reuters reported, citing Chinese officials.

Political tensions remain, however. Beijing reminded London ahead of Li’s trip not to interfere in China’s domestic affairs.
