BREXIT: A new frontier for the UK

 As Theresa May seeks to push for a “hard Brexit”, it seems that bilateral ties between the UK and China will strengthen as China continuously seeks to invest heavily in the UK market. Indeed the ‘Belt and Road’ initiative which forecasts a $2.5 trillion rise in global trade presents an unprecedented opportunity for the UK to strike trade agreements with China. This can already be seen via outbound investments in the M&A market between UK and China.  With regards to M&A, Dealogic reported that in 2016 alone, there has been approximately £12b of outbound investments by China in the UK. In light of this, more deals can be struck up with China by the UK such as global infrastructure projects. Indeed, all hope is not lost for the UK.
