All Party Parliamentary China Group
The All Party Parliamentary China Group (APPCG) was established in 1997 to widen the parliamentary contribution to the general UK-China bilateral relationship. We exist as a platform for discussions on all issues of importance to the bilateral relationship and welcome ideas to enhance this.
Parliament and the National People’s Congress
The APPCG seeks to strengthen the relationship between Parliament and its legislative counterpart the National People’s Congress. In particular, the APPCG’s activities provide a valuable opportunity to increase cross-parliamentary dialogue and develop understanding between the two legislatures, as well as facilitating discussion and exchange of ideas on topical issues.
The APPCG has a counterpart organisation in the National People’s Congress in the form of the China-UK Friendship Group. In 2006 a Memorandum of Understanding was signed to consolidate the relationship between the two groups, and since then there have been regular exchanges to facilitate closer dialogue and deepen knowledge and understanding.
