UK to Propose Interim Customs Agreement with EU After Brexit

 

The British government is proposing an interim customs agreement with the European Union after Brexit to allow trade to continue as freely as possible once the UK leaves the EU.

The Brexit Minister David Davis says that under the plan, existing customs arrangements would broadly stay in place during an interim period.

The UK has said it will leave the EU’s Customs Union – its tariff-free trading area – and the Single Market when its membership of the bloc ends in March 2019.
