Delegates from the Isle of Man government are heading to China in a "mission" to encourage business from the "economic powerhouse".

Chief minister Allan Bell and his team of twelve will spend five days in Beijing, Tianjin and Shanghai for an "intensive programme of meetings".

It follows a visit from the Chinese Ambassador, Liu Xiaoming last year.

Mr Bell said:"It takes time to develop relationships in China, and personal contact is important."

He added: "The potential economic benefits of building business links with China are significant, which is why we are investing so much time and effort in this visit."

As well as Manx government representatives, some of the delegates travelling to China are members of the island's business community.
