Britain and China signed deals on Tuesday worth more than 14 billion pounds during a visit by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, with energy and finance dominating the trade agenda. In a trip aimed at deepening commercial ties between the world's second-largest economy and Europe's financial capital and drawing a line under a row over Tibet, Li met Queen Elizabeth and held talks with Prime Minister David Cameron. Cameron said the rise of China was "one of the defining events of our century" and that Britain wanted to strengthen ties on every level, from business to cultural understanding.
