European markets were mostly in the green in early trade on Thursday as the Chinese government announced it is considering changes to its Made in China 2025 economic development plan in an effort to ease trade relations with the United States. Meanwhile in the United Kingdom, British Prime Minister Theresa May fought off the no-confidence vote in the Parliament by a huge margin, with 200 votes in her favor.
