We are talking to a number of countries about future trading options, including Free Trade Agreements. We are also using instruments like Joint Trade Reviews, a collaborative in-depth analysis into the mutual trading relationship between the UK and a partner country; to look for areas we can improve our bilateral trading relationships.

We will aim through these discussions to put in place various mechanisms to improve trading relations and remove barriers affecting UK businesses.
