The UK has one of the strongest and most productive life sciences sectors in the world. This Government is committed to ensuring a positive outcome for the sector, that enhances competitiveness and builds on the success that we are rightly proud of, as we exit the European Union.

The UK will engage constructively to negotiate an approach to enforcement and dispute resolution for the future partnership which meets the key objectives of the UK and the EU, including for the life sciences sector. This will underpin the deep and special partnership we are seeking with the EU.
