The UK is worryingly exposed to China – but the IRR is a step in the right direction
An article for CapX
Following on from my post about the UK’s Integrated Review Refresh (IRR) last week, here is an article I have written for CapX on the fast-moving geopolitical changes these last few months (including China’s foreign minister threatening the US with conflict) and what this means for the IRR.
From education to rare earths, the UK has become over-reliant on the PRC
Washington is taking active and rapid steps to reduce its exposure to China
Britain has no real contingency plan for a breakdown in relations with Beijing
We will be back on Thursday for more What China Wants. Many thanks for reading.
