Seventeen sixth formers from Birkdale School saw the economic powerhouse of China at first hand.

Their itinerary included state-owned companies such as the Yanjing Brewery Co in Beijing, the joint Sino-German Volkswagen car plant in Shanghai and international real estate agents Jones Lang LaSalle in Shanghai.

Students visited the Great Wall and Forbidden Palace in Beijing, the Terracotta Warriors in Xian and two schools.
