British Prime Minister David Cameron has arrived in Tokyo for the first leg of a Far East tour designed to boost trade and investment.

In talks with his counterpart Yoshihiko Noda, Cameron hopes to seal agreements that will help British firms access the Japan's previously closed defence industry. He is also pushing British expertise in nuclear decommissioning, as Japan continues its clean-up from last year's massive earthquake.

Deals are also due on more than 200 million pounds of new Japanese investment in Britain, which will create 15-hundred jobs and safeguard thousands more.

Cameron will visit the headquarters of Nissan in Yokohama on Wednesday, where the car giant is to announce that its British plant will produce a new hatchback from 2014.
