‘Bye-bye, Europe’s backwardness. Greetings, amazing future!’ Britons are overjoyed at the £9 trillion trade prize.
With Brexit Britain looking certain to enter a huge £9 trillion free-trade deal by December 2022 – which might substantially replace EU commerce – Liz Truss has got yet more well-deserved plaudits.
International Trade Secretary Liz Truss is optimistic that the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) discussions will be completed by the end of next year. Australia, Canada, Japan, and Singapore, as well as Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, and Vietnam, make up the multi-billion-pound bloc. Ms Truss emphasized that talks with the CPTPP’s 11 members are crucial to the government’s post-Brexit trade goal of “Global Britain.”
After warning that the EU’s economic dominance will wane in the next decades, she added that the UK must explore for lucrative and advantageous trade prospects outside of the bloc.
“In 20 or 30 years, the EU will have a lesser share of the international economy, and countries like Vietnam or Malaysia, which are part of the CPTPP, will be a bigger share,” the minister predicted.
The Secretary of State for International Trade is also optimistic that the United States will re-join the partnership after quitting in 2017.
“The United States was one of the original partners in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and the new administration has not signaled that they intend to join it,” she said on the Payne’s Politics podcast. But who knows what the future may hold.”
Following the latest enormous post-Brexit trade victory for “Global Britain,” Ms Truss has been praised by Brexiteers.
“Goodbye to the backwards-looking EU superstate and hello to the open trade club of individualistic sovereignty-loving, faster-growing Pacific nations,” one This website reader commented in response to our initial story.
“A trading future that is infinitely superior.”
“Loving how it works nowadays,” said a second person. Democracy is fantastic.
“Liz goes out this week to negotiate a new trade agreement, as you do when the entire world wants to trade with you. The liberals and Remainers will then have a small window to try to bring it down.
“Of course, with an 80-plus seat majority that is unlikely to change anytime soon, the administration just ignores them. We voted them in and given them the ability to negotiate these deals, so they can do it.
“Finally, for the next century, the liberals and Rejoiners whine while the Brexiteers laugh at them.
“Doesn’t democracy deserve to be fought for?”
