Of course, there are disagreements and disagreements, but there is also sobriety and realism. The EU remains convinced that it can defend its values and defend its values while maintaining a principle of commitment and cooperation with China, instead of pursuing the unfettered mantra of neo-cold and mcCarthyist politics. As of 31 October 2020[update], the United Kingdom had concluded 24 trade agreements with 53 countries, some using mutatis mutandis an approach mutatis mutandis to quickly emulate existing agreements between the EU and these countries, specifying only these small areas of differentiation (which has reduced some agreements to about 40 pages from the initial region of 1400). Among them are significant economies — by nominal GDP — such as South Korea, Switzerland, Israel and South Africa. The agreement, described by the EU Council as the “first major bilateral trade agreement between the EU and China”, imposes the protection of the rights of 100 EU food products on the Chinese market (such as European wine and cheese), reserving the same guarantee for 100 China-related products in Europe. This is something that Beijing is willing to compromise on. The new agreement comes at an important time to symbolize confidence, content and progress in the development of trade negotiations, market access and investment between the two sides. The UK trade agreement with Switzerland contains elements of the EU-Switzerland MRA. In the future, ministers will be required to both conduct a human rights impact assessment for each trade agreement and revoke an agreement in cases where potential genocide is found in a provisional ruling by the UK Supreme Court.
This would be the first time that national courts will have the right to declare whether there has been genocide in another country. Updated to reflect ongoing trade negotiations with Turkey and Vietnam As Europe and China make economic progress, the UK has managed to move away from these two huge markets and is left to the Trump administration. Given that the EU-China agreement defends the country of origin protocol, the White House is asking Britain to withdraw it in order to reduce its food standards and flood its agricultural markets with poor quality chicken. Britain has adopted a dogmatic foreign policy, while Europe has pursued a pragmatic policy. The contrast couldn`t be greater. Updated to reflect the agreement in principle between the United Kingdom and Canada on trade continuity. The UK has signed a free trade agreement with Japan. As a result, the trade agreement between the EU and China and the companies of Pompeo in London show two very different geopolitical paths, one is reasonable, the other is suicidal. At the same time, the agreement came when US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived in the UK to push London to toughen its stance towards China.
