We stand ready to begin negotiations on the future relationship between the UK and the EU immediately after exit. The Withdrawal Agreement will ensure a transition to a smooth and orderly future relationship.

Both the UK and the EU are committed to ensuring that the necessary arrangements for our future partnership come into force by the end of 2020, as set out in the joint UK-EU Political Declaration of 22nd November 2018.
