[Homework]2014-06-21 英国简化中国游客签证程序

Whether it is Buckingham Palace, the shops on Vaunt Street or the restaurants in central London, tourists are helping Britain's economy grow. But not enough of them are from China. If UK is losing out to its European rivals such as France, and not because UK is not part of the Visa agreement which allows overseas visitors to travel to 26 countries in Europe. 90% of Chinese Tour Operators say they leave UK off the itinerary every year, but Chinese tourists did spend nearly half a billion last year and the plan is for that to increase with the Home Office simplifying the process by allowing tourists to apply for UK Visa using the same form as other European countries. We have come to increasing reliance on China to make things, even our iconic Black Cab, but for too long, it has been a one way street, that is why the government is relaxing the rules on Visas, the hope is to tap into the increasing spending power of the Chinese middle class. This is all time of course with the visiting China's Premier, he started a four-day-trip here, and the 5 billion pound deal with two of Britain's biggest old companies - BP and Shell, part of 18 billion pounds worth of trade agreements expected to be finalized in the coming days. We need to do everything we can to boost the UK's export growth, and that means we need to be exporting much more to fasting growing markets like China. At the moment, we export more to Ireland than we do to China, so there is a need to take some action and to do it pretty quickly. Diplomatic relations recently have not been cordial with Chinese human rights abuses creating tensions,but new trade deals, Visa relaxations and indeed our meeting for the Chinese Premier with the Queen will surely help them improve the picture for British-Chinese relations.
