British Prime Minister David Cameron is to come to China in the autumn for a summit with President Hu Jintao and meetings with other members of the leadership, according to the British Embassy in Beijing.

It follows their first meeting which took place in Toronto, Canada, where they had travelled for the G20 Summit.

Afterwards the Prime Minister's Office spoke of the 30 minute meeting with President Hu, saying: "The Prime Minister underlined his personal commitment to an upgrade in the relationship between Britain and China, founded in a vibrant trade and economic relationship."

The leaders agreed on the vital importance of current efforts to secure the global economic recovery including through fiscal consolidation.

"There was a meeting of minds on global trade. The Prime Minister and the President reaffirmed their desire to conclude the Doha trade round and boost UK-China bilateral trade. "

The President invited the Prime Minister to visit China in November when he is due to attend the G20 Summit in Seoul, South Korea. Downing Street said: "The Prime Minister was pleased to accept and looked forward to a regular dialogue with the President going forward."
