AS the prime minister’s latest trade delegation to China gets underway today (Monday) he will be joined by Isle of Wight company AJ Wells & Sons.
Hugh Wells will represent the Island woodburning stove company during the three-day trip.
He is one of 150 business leaders invited on the trip with David Cameron and senior business ministers, promoting British industry.
At the prime minister’s annual address to the Lord Mayor's banquet, Mr Cameron said regarding the trip, it would: "Open the way for British companies to benefit from China's vast and varied markets and preparing the way for a new level of Chinese investment into the UK.
"This is a relationship that is for the long term, that matters for Britain and China, and which I look forward to continuing to strengthen in the months and years to come."
Mr Wells said: "We are passionate about designing and manufacturing British products that use the very best of British technology.
"We are successful in many markets around the world because customers appreciate the quality and functionality of our products.
"China is a massively important trading country for the UK but we do not have any business here yet. This trip gives us an opportunity get our products in front of Chinese customers who are increasingly choosing to use British and European goods in their homes."
