Trade Deals Update

The UK has reached an agreement with Asian free trade partnership Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

Nearly a part of the £8.4 trillion club,  the UK will now enter the market access phase of negotiations with the free trade area.

It comes ahead of international trade secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyan’s trip to Indonesia, Japan and Singapore next week.

Additionally, given that Biden is dragging his heels over a trade deal with the USA, the UK will negotiate trade deals with individual American states.
