China to aid recession recovery by doubling UK exports 

1.  Britain's recovery from recession can be helped by a doubling in exports to China over two years, Prime Minister Gordon Brown said following talks in Downing Street with the Far Eastern giant's Premier Wen Jiabao this morning.

2.  Mr Brown said: "I believe that there is much scope for trade and investment to expand between our two countries even in these most difficult of times for the global economy.

3.  Today's meeting was one of a series of talks with leaders of the G20 group of leading economies ahead of the London summit in April, at which Mr Brown said "work against protectionism" would be a major theme.
