Negotiating a comprehensive free trade agreement with the EU, greater in scope than any such agreement before, is a priority for the Government as we leave the EU. Stakeholder engagement is a central element of our plan to build a national consensus around our negotiating position.

We continue to engage with businesses and industry bodies from all sectors of the economy, in order to inform our negotiations with the EU. The Government is committed to the best possible deal for the United Kingdom - a deal that works for the entirety of the UK economy.
