It’s more of a political gain rather than to really benefit from it by importing physical stuff. Even a small selling and buying would mark a dramatic policy change. The ban was been placed because of china's 89 Tiananmen square democracy movement, which the western world had frequently used, and still using it to attack China's policies just about every issue (political, economical, and militarily) during the following 15 years of "poor" human rights and democracy standard even till now. The plan of lifting the ban also showed that the EU block and US unfriendly feeling continued.

The U.S not only really has nothing to lose on this situation, but also potential gains out of it. The U.S has been pushing a military purchase of more than 18 billion dollars from Taiwan, the lift will push the Taiwanese government to go head for the plan without bargain, and more likely to shop from the U.S in the future, because china is going to have more easy access to those EU weapon technologies which Taiwan currently equipped.

The only country that probably hates this idea is Japan, not to mention the last three years of china-Japan relation was on ice, but any warm towards to china, will hurt the Japanese influence in Asia and around the world, both politically and militarily.

For more issues regarding on the china-Japan relations, you could see my post under the “Topic: China' army”, page 9.

That or it shows the EU is desperate to try to find someone to sell thier arms to that isn't right beside them and could one day use thier own weapons on them.
