Brexit is a game changer for Europe.
It will leave us no option but to work hard to maintain a fair trade deal.
A new EU Commission is due to take up the question of the future of the UK’s trading relationship with the European Union (EU).
The UK’s position in the EU will also be determined.
For some, it is a defining moment.
For others, it will be a defining period.
But for many, it’s also the moment to begin the process of making the best of the uncertain future.
What happens after Brexit?
The first order of business is to decide what kind of future Britain wants.
For those who were wondering, here’s what is going to happen.
It is going down to the wire.
And with it, the future shape of the EU.
It will be the biggest political decision Britain has made since it left the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) in 1975.
The UK is not a member of the ECC and its status as a “non-member state” means it cannot enter into a trade agreement with other member states, such as the US, or take part in the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), which covers most agricultural products.
It can only enter into bilateral trade agreements with its neighbours.
The Government’s Brexit Strategy is now due to be published, but the Government is not yet ready to outline its negotiating strategy.
The European Commission has said it will begin negotiating Britain’s future trade relationship with other countries, but it has not yet given a deadline.
The EU’s President, Jean-Claude Juncker, said the UK could stay in the single market but not the single currency, the euro, or even the customs union, as the UK does not have a trade deal with the EU yet.
The EU has also said it is open to discussions with the UK on trade, but will not negotiate for the UK to stay in.
The Government has set out its negotiating position for Brexit, which is based on the “best interests of the British people” and the “importance of retaining access to the single European market for UK exporters, firms and consumers”.
The UK has agreed to the EU’s negotiating objectives.
It wants to stay within the Single Market and the Customs Union.
It also wants to keep its “fast track” tariff regime and customs union with the 28 member states.
Under the UK negotiating strategy, it wants to retain the right to take back control of immigration, to negotiate access to EU financial markets and to maintain the “three freedoms” of free movement of goods, services, capital and people.
It wants to continue to negotiate a “soft Brexit” to allow the UK a “hard Brexit” of “no hard border” on its borders, without the “hard border” that the UK has been pursuing since Brexit day.
If there is a hard Brexit, it means the UK will be forced to seek a different relationship with Brussels in a new customs union agreement, and the EU would have to change its approach to the UK.
The government will need to secure its own “fast-track” tariff rules.
It must also secure access to financial markets.
In addition, the UK must retain its access to a number of free trade agreements, including the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), which it signed with the bloc in 1995.
EU members must also accept the UK remaining in the Single European Market, or “ESM”, a trade area that includes the 28 EU states.
However, the Government has said the “strongest support” it will give to the ESM will be “for the UK, which will remain an ESM member.”
The ESM is a trade zone that provides free movement for goods, but not services.
The British government argues that it is vital to keep the EMS and free movement as a two-way channel to the European market.
The EMS, in particular, has seen the UK fall short in negotiating trade deals with the rest of the world, including countries like China.
As well as the EMA, the EU wants to establish a customs union in which member states can negotiate trade deals.
The aim is to create a “new economic space” for the European economy, as well as “the possibility for the EU to open new markets for UK products and services”.
The government wants the UK not to leave the Ems and wants the trade deal to be as close as possible to the “free trade agreement” that it signed on the eve of Brexit day in March 2019.
But there is no guarantee of this.
Brexit could lead to tariffs being raised on certain goods and services, such the goods and service tax (GST) and duties on imports, and potentially, the government could be forced into withdrawing from the EMs and EMS.
On the other hand, the European Commission wants the “soft” Brexit, in which the UK would retain access to Ems, to be
