Jan 29 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening up 23 points on Wednesday, according to financial bookmakers.

* UK 5G: Prime Minister Boris Johnson granted Huawei a limited role in Britain's 5G mobile network on Tuesday, frustrating a global attempt by the United States to exclude the Chinese telecoms giant from the West's next-generation communications. UK SHOP PRICES: The rate of decline in prices on the British high street slowed in January, an industry survey showed on Wednesday. VODAFONE: Vodafone Group VOD.L is to sign a memorandum of understanding with Saudi Telecom 7010.SE for the possible sale of a stake in Vodafone Egypt VODE.CA, the Egyptian cabinet said in a statement on Tuesday. RYANAIR: Ryanair RYA.I has warned pilots it may have to cut more jobs and close bases because the delivery date for its first 10 Boeing (NYSE: BA ) 737 MAX jets has slipped into the autumn. OIL: Oil prices rose for a second day on Wednesday, standing on firmer ground after a five-day rout on talk that OPEC could extend oil cuts if a new coronavirus hurts demand, while data showing a decline in U.S. stockpiles also helped steady prices. GOLD: Gold prices were little changed after sliding 1% in the previous session, as investors took stock of the economic impact of the new coronavirus and awaited the U.S. Federal Reserve's interest rate decision. The UK blue-chip index .FTSE closed up 0.9% on Tuesday after shedding more than 2% in the previous session on fears over China's coronavirus outbreak, with shares of blue-chip exporters firming as the pound slid to a one-week low.
