Negotiations are currently ongoing with Australia, New Zealand, and the United States on deals that will have significant benefits for the whole of the United Kingdom.

In preparation for negotiations with Canada and Mexico, the Department for International Trade (DIT) has just launched a call for input which will help understand business and stakeholder’s interests, as well as strategically sensitive sectors.

DIT is unable to comment on sensitive issues regarding ongoing negotiations, as it would compromise such negotiations. However, as soon as it is possible, DIT will inform Parliament of the progress and outcomes of the negotiations.
