'My Chinese dream': Dreaming of personal connection, not business

British entrepreneur Simon Haworth has had family business with China for 150 years. Now he wants to build more bridges between the two countries – on a personal level.

"My dream for this bridge building activity between (the) UK and China is not to do with business – the dream is about personal connections," he said.

"We have had projects where we have linked young people in the UK with young people in China, because my dream is that the two nations understand each other at the personal level and that takes a lot of work, that takes a lot of removal of prejudice and misunderstanding from both sides. And it's not about political differences. It's about human engagement."
