10 countries have signed trade agreements as a result of Brexit. The United Kingdom will reach agreements with the following countries – TWO of the most important.
BRITAIN formally left the European Union in 2020, and since then, it has been working to negotiate free trade deals with other countries. Following Brexit, here are the ten nations that could be next in line for a free trade agreement with the UK.
Britain is no longer bound by the European Union (EU), allowing it to negotiate free trade agreements that better suit the country and its needs. The UK has already reached an agreement with Australia, and it is well on its way to achieving other significant agreements. This website discusses with an economist about the ten countries with which Britain is most likely to reach an agreement next, as well as why they are significant priority for the UK.
The Australia deal was the first trade agreement signed between the UK and Australia since the UK exited the EU.
The agreement was announced on June 15, and it states that Australia will be able to transport a set amount of agricultural goods to the United Kingdom each year without having to pay tariffs (taxes on imports).
These restrictions (or quotas) will rise with time.
Except for long-grain rice, there will be no quotas or tariffs on agricultural products after 15 years.
Sugar and dairy tariff-free quotas will be phased out sooner than expected: eight years for sugar and five years for dairy.
“Iconic British products like automobiles, Scotch whisky, cookies, and ceramics will be costlier to export into Australia,” according to the UK government.
Under the terms of a trade agreement reached with Canberra, British companies will have zero-tariff access to Australia’s railways.
The existing 5% tariff on rail items will be removed, allowing UK companies to compete for billions of pounds in Australian government contracts for train supply, track infrastructure, and consultancy.
The United Kingdom is on the verge of signing a trade agreement with New Zealand.
The agreement is expected to be similar to Britain’s contentious agreement with Australia on agricultural imports.
The entire specifics are still being worked out, but the goal is to boost cross-national trade by making it cheaper to import and export items.
According to The Independent, briefing invites were given to important corporate and advisory organizations.
According to one source, talks are progressing well, with some last wrinkles likely to be ironed out “within the next several days.”
