YOU NEED TO ENFORCE, ME OLD CHINA


EU Trade Commissioner Peter Mandelson has warned China that the EU expects it to improve its IP enforcement measures, and to improve access to the market for European products, according to Businessweek.

Although improvements have been made, the EU argues that China is still not meeting its TRIPs obligations and that if things don't change, the European market may be made less easy for Chinese producers to enter.

PM is not amused

Mandelson said:
"China matters to every single European, probably more in the long term than any other single issue...I will keep coming back as often as it takes to get this relationship right."
Ever the cynic, Merpel notes that someone is going to get a lot of jollies to China.
