The UK Government is working closely with the Government of Anguilla to enable them to understand the implications of the UK leaving the EU. Ministers and officials regularly engage with representatives from Anguilla and the other Overseas Territories through the Overseas Territories Joint Ministerial Council which last met on 4 and 5 December 2018. This mechanism for dialogue ensures that assessments about the potential effects of EU Exit on their territories can be shared.

The Government is committed to working with Anguilla through the negotiation process with the EU, and getting a deal that works for the whole British family, which includes Anguilla.
