Vietnam, EU sign landmark free trade deal

The EU signed a landmark free trade deal with Vietnam on Sunday, paving the way for tariff reductions on 99 per cent of goods between the trading bloc and Southeast Asian country. It still needs the approval of the European Parliament. The EU has described the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) as ’the most ambitious free trade deal ever concluded with a developing country’.

How about we sign something that allows people to legally investigate the holocaust instead? Yes it's illegal to investigate and even disprove in certain countries.

What is the point if the EU? A trading union built to benifit member states of europe..... Has started working towards free trade with non-member states..... These people have completely abandoned any semblance of their original purpose.

I have an idea, let's make it even easier for a country that exploits its workforce and violates human rights to keep production costs down and undercut out industries to export to us.

Sure they can it will just take 3 to 5 years of negotiation, once it gets put on the calendar. Britton's first there though should be India, China, and the US. Kind of funny the once mighty Great Britton now having to go hat in hand to former colonies, with really not much to offer.
