The United Kingdom signed a Trade Continuity Agreement with Mexico on 15th December 2020. The Government has agreed to begin new negotiations with Mexico on an ambitious, modern and comprehensive free trade agreement within one year, and to conclude them within three years.

The joint political statement published by both countries commits that this will be at least as liberalising as the EU-Mexico Modernised Agreement that will come into force next year.
