CR-929: UK interested in avionics and on-board electronics component
Attempts to sign trade agreements with China industries
The British interest in China and the Chinese market is steadily increasing, especially after Prime Minister Theresa May talked about the willingness to find a free trade agreement with Beijing following the "Brexit". Furthermore, the US trade sanctions on China could allow the United Kingdom to enter the market for high-tech components much sought after by Chinese industries, and the proof of this was both the words of Xi Jinping at the Shanghai Trade Show, and the massive presence of British companies at the "Zhuhai Airshow".
The field of greatest interest could be that of the aerospace industry mainly because the United Kingdom is the second country in the world after the United States for its capabilities in this field, and the idea would be to enter that sector in order to find an outlet. in addition to local products. The main interest is in the new Chinese wide-body airplane CR-929, since this would be the best time to enter before being definitively excluded. A situation similar to that of Leonardo who decided to invest in the program by forming a JV with a Chinese company to build part of the fuselage, but in the case of British companies the interest would be both for what concerns engines and electronics and avionics. A way to remain in world markets without great difficulties after leaving the European Union scheduled for March 29, 2019.
