Abstract: This is a part of a bigger study on China-UK relations and the international communication in the world media. It consists of two parts: a/ brief history and b/ last developments, 2015 and 2016. The history, though well studied already, is approached from a relatively new aspect, international communication perspective. The two major 2017 events – 380 years since the first contacts between both Empires and 45th anniversary of full UK-PRC diplomatic relations – are shaping the new bilateral relations framework, rather influential over the global strategic pivots in the 21st c.
