Will reopen the integrated review, published last year, which set out British priorities in diplomacy and defence over the next decade.

China was described as a “systemic competitor” but the review argued that the UK should deepen its trading relationship with Beijing.

China would be elevated to a similar status as Russia, which is defined in the review as an “acute threat”.
