This is excellent news and demonstrates beyond doubt how much the EU has been holding us back for its own benefit
. Hence, the suggestion that we have been the EU's cash cow over all these years.
When (or IF) we are eventually completely free of the EU, I imagine that things will become even better for us.
As for trading with China, I'm afraid that is inevitable, at least for the moment. The problem is that they can produce goods far more cheaply than we can, and probably so compared to most other countries in the world.
Having said that, I recently bought an excellent pair of leather shoes at Sainsbury's - made in India!
So, yes, I'm afraid that cheaply-made goods are things that we are, as yet, unable to compete with. I think the best we can hope for is to set up manufacturing plants in the Far East, but owned and run by our own people - and profits should come to this country of course!
