Describing Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's ongoing visit to China as a "land mark" visit, British Ambassador to China Sir Christopher Hum has said it would pave the way for increased trade between the two countries.
"China is moving in a constructive way and this visit of your Prime Minister (Atal Bihari Vajpayee) is very much a land mark visit," Sir Hum told a group of Indian journalist here on Wednesday evening.
Vajpayee is currently on a six-day visit to China which concludes on Friday.
"The visit will help gradually improve and increase bilateral trade and the visit is absolutely part of the trend," Sir Hum said.
