On 3 October 2010, we learn that China has pledged to prop up the eurozone and keep Greece afloat

According to the Mail on Sunday, Premier Wen Jiabao made this offer at the start of his two-day visit to Greece.

Wen said that "China is holding Greek bonds and will keep buying bonds that Greece issues.

"We will undertake to support eurozone countries and Greece to overcome the crisis."

Wen is to attend an EU-China summit.

In the USA, the House of Representatives has voted for a Bill designed to protect against Chinese imports if China does not allow the yuan to rise significantly.

China has warned the USA that this could damage economic ties.
