The Political Declaration on the future relationship with the EU outlines the UK and EU’s commitment to a free trade area for goods, with no tariffs and no quotas. The Government also recently consulted on possible future free trade agreements with the United States, New Zealand, and Australia, as well as on the UK’s potential accession to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement on Trans-Pacific Partnership. We also want to work with other partners around the world to increase trade and investment flows and improve market access.
