UK says wants to negotiate trade deals during Brexit transition

Published: Updated:

Britain will seek to negotiate trade deals with countries outside the European Union during a Brexit transition period but it would not bring any such deals into effect if they clashed with the transition terms, the government said on Monday.

In a document setting out its post-Brexit trade plans, the government said it would seek to "transition all existing EU trade agreements and other EU preferential arrangements" to provide continuity for exporters and investors.
