There could be some good news on the foreign front, though. Tom Newton Dunn at The Sun reports that the UK might wrap up a trade deal with Japan by the autumn which would go further than the current EU-Japan deal. It would “break new ground” in the digital and financial services sectors.
SUN – BORIS Johnson wants to strike Britain’s first post-Brexit trade deal with Japan, and before the end of the year, in a bid to whip up a bandwagon.
Cabinet ministers have agreed to pursue an agreement with Tokyo at lightning speed, The Sun can reveal, with hopes rising among nation’s leaders that it could be wrapped up in the Autumn.
TAP – I had an office in Tokyo for seven years and found Japanese buyers most receptive to British products. They buy quality and don’t mind paying for it. Many of the best shops in Tokyo are British with names people in Britain have never heard of. Asians generally have high regard for Britain and British goods. The Japanese say we are the most interesting people in the world – meaning our history snd culture. The French they say are the most stylish, and the Italians the best designers. ‘Interesting’ is a good start….like the current Prime Minister.
