In 2017, UK Prime Minister Theresa May triggered Article 50 and officiated the United Kingdom’s wish to exit the European Union. The direction of Brexit is still not entirely clear and the issue of borders is high on the list of concerns.
Brexit: Yes… but where to?‘, a major new Friends of Europe policy briefing takes a hard look at Brexit in its current state, seeking to guide decision-makers on both sides of the English Channel.
With a special focus on trade of goods and services, the author, Mogens Peter Carl, a former director-general of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Trade and Directorate-General for the Environment, lays out a road that goes beyond the end of the transition period of 2020.
The report covers all the main elements on the future of trade between the UK and EU27, from a truly comprehensive FTA and customs control, to regulatory convergence and rules of origin.
