China is a growth market and vital to the world economy. It's good to see China and the UK hosting one another. Its just a shame we wont be able to negotiate to our full potential. unlike Switzerland who signed a free trade agreement with China. boosting bilateral trade from $26billion per year to $23Billion within the first three months alone.

With the markets predicting the UK to be the biggest economy in Europe by 2030, we should be doing our own Swiss type deals. at least its all good news. :tu:

You mean you will be happy with the fax-o-cracy? The Guys in Brussels send a fax to the Swiss government telling them what new rules apply without the Swiss getting to vote on it... if they don't like it they can quit their free market access...

well, lets see. if being part of the free trade area within European borders then yes. It'll be part of the trade agreement we have with the European Union. But what is unacceptable would be directives in areas relating not to trade. I don't mind harmonising with trading partners. - Best of both worlds. trading with the european union on one hand and trading with the world economy on the other. its the ideal place for the United Kingdom with its outward looking global economy, focusing on the growth markets. negotiating our own trade deals on our own terms and conditions and not having to answer to the EU. :tu:

So, you want to be ordered around by Brussels without being able to influence it and you call that British Independence?

I call that British Clientstatedom.

That part of the Swiss laws (and Norwegian laws for the case) are made in Brussels without the say so of the elected Swiss or Norwegian representatives. That is why they have access to the EU market without being part of it.

And that is exactly what will happen to Britain if they want access to the market without being part of the EU.

Yes i call it British independence for the simple reason if we entered the free trade area under acceptable terms then i'd have no problem complying with certain aspects from Brussels that is trade related. If the terms were unacceptable we'd have to remain outside the free trade area and negotiate trading terms. obviously it would be the UK in talks with the EU, negotiating on behalf of their 27 members im sure we'd come to an applicable agreement which would be mutually beneficial seeing how the UK buys more from Europe than Europe does from the UK. im sure our biggest trading Partners within the EU Germany France, The Netherlands, Italy and Ireland would like to see the good relations continue with ill effect to trade and commerce.

China signs £14bn trade deals with UK amid Premier's visit

_75595966_75595965.jpg

The news comes on the first full day of a visit by its leader. - the projects the state-owned China Development Bank (CDB) wants to invest in include High Speed 2 and the next generation of nuclear power stations. A major deal between BP and China National Offshore Oil Corporation is worth about $20bn (£11.8bn). That will run over 20 years.

CDB has signed a memorandum of understanding with TheCityUK. The agreement will encourage CDB lending in the UK as well as trading in China's currency, the renminbi, which will open up trade opportunities in China to British businesses. and the UK continues to be the leading destination for foreign investment. UK is confirmed as leading European destination for foreign direct investment. Investment figures show the UK has continued to strengthen its position as the leading European destination for foreign direct investment.

Chinese top five investment destinations in europe.

United Kingdom. $31.5 Billion.

France $9.2 Billion.

Switzerland $8.2 Billion. non EU member.

Greece $6.6 Billion.

Turkey $6.4Billion. non EU member.

Chinese top five investment destinations in the world.

Australia $58.2 Billion.

USA $56.7 Billion.

Canada $37.6 Billion.

United Kingdom $31.5 Billion.

Brazil $28.2 Billion.

Interesting, no EU member country appears in the top ten. in fact the first EU member country to make an appearance is France ranked15th position.
