‚ÄčAs agreed at the March European Council, during the implementation period the UK is to be treated as a Member State for the purposes of international agreements. This includes the EU Central America Association Agreement. This provides certainty and confidence that there will be no disruption to existing relationships underpinned by international agreements. We are engaging with partner countries to ensure continuity of the effect of existing agreements, adjusted appropriately to reflect our departure from the European Union.
