CHINA - People in Sichuan province could be eating more British pork after British Prime Minister David Cameron's recent visit to China, according to Tianfu Morning Post.

Mr Cameron inked a deal during his recent visit to export pig sperm worth 45 million pounds ($73.7 million) to China.

Foreign pigs can yield leaner meat than Chinese hogs.
