There has been much talk of free trade agreements lately.

But possibly the biggest news has been signs that the EU and US might finally chalk up something – which could lead to an export boost worth some $150bn within five years. Yes, there will no doubt be stumbling blocks. But the news that the duo will at least try, and start soon, can only be good.
