A close trading relationship benefits both the UK and EU Member States, and we want the broadest and deepest possible partnership – covering more sectors and co-operating more fully than any Free Trade Agreement anywhere in the world today. We want to have the greatest possible tariff- and barrier-free trade with our European neighbours, as well as to negotiate our own trade agreements around the world. As the Prime Minister stated in her Mansion House speech, this means we do not want to see the introduction of any tariffs or quotas.
