The opening ceremony of the Great Britain China Centre.
The Great Britain–China Centre promotes good relations between the two nations, focusing on legal, judicial, and labor reform.
The Great Britain–China Centre was founded on 16 July 1974 by British Foreign Secretary James Callaghan under the auspices of the British Council and with the help of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The center was created to provide greater nongovernmental contact between Britain and China and to promote cultural exchanges for the development of good relations between the two nations. Although in its early years the center’s mission was primarily cultural education, in recent years the mission has shifted to legal, judicial, and labor reform.
