EU’s level playing field demand Ignored as Britain ploughs ahead laying ground work for new trade deals.

As we head towards the end of the transition period with the EU, Britain has been reaching out to nations all over the world to lay the groundwork for free trade deals.

Liz Truss, UK Secretary of State for International Trade, held a virtual economic meeting on the 26th August where economic ministers and officials from ten ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) member states, as well as ASEAN Secretary-General Dato Lim Jock Hoi, met to discuss the future joint vision on trade and services.

The gathering was deemed a positive success where the terms “solidarity and collaboration” were used. There was a distinct determination from all sides to bring closer ties between the UK and ASEAN. The two sides said they wanted to “sustain and deepen the close economic ties between ASEAN and the UK”.

Countries all over the world lining up to trade with Britain.

With the world economies having been effected by COVID-19, the UK and ASEAN member states said they are “committed to working together” to “mitigate the economic impact of COVID- 19”.
The UK welcomes the longstanding economic relationship between ASEAN and the UK.

The relationship between the UK and ASEAN has been in place for over 50 years and is said to be worth £42bn in bilateral trade in goods and services. As we leave the EU in its entirety, there’s a determination between the two sides to massively increase trade in goods and services, meaning a much “deeper and broader” future ahead of us.

This shows that post-Brexit, without the meddling of the EU, Britain can lead the way, forging new relationships on trade between nations from all over the world. This vision for a Free trading Britain goes against the EU’s concept of a level playing field, which would make Britains trade deals subservient to the stamp of approval from the EU.

For an EU – UK trade deal to be completed before the end of the year, the EU trade negotiator, Michel Barnier has set conditions, saying for a trade deal to be finalised, there has to be an agreement on a level playing field and fisheries.
The UK negotiator, David Frost, has stated numerous times that the UK won’t entertain anything that goes against its sovereignty as it leaves the bloc. Both sides have said, as it stands, no deal is the most probable outcome of these negotiations.

  1. To PM Boris Johnson and team continue with your stance against the EU in making our country Great again. Let us depend on ourselves with help from our commonwealth and friends not what is handed down to us from so called friends

  2. Its nice to see a team who wants to play fair, but who will suport the uk. Barnier wants what he wants but the other heads of the eu want it different..its the french who are pushing for greater access to our waters.they catch the most and give us whats left..now thatvits changing..they dont like it, and i think our navy may be needed. So pleased with liz truss and the deals shes doing..even though it upsets the remoaners who still think thebuk will sink.
    The only other complaint i have are the hoards of illegals arriving daily..and the fiasco of their luxuries.
