Assessing the UK's trade policy readiness.
The UK is now a trade policy laboratory developing and implementing a trade policy almost from scratch. In under a year’s time it will be able to start formal negotiations for trade agreements, and has indicated that it intends to use this power to start talks with the USA among others.
– Will the UK be ready to negotiate trade agreements?
– What do we know so far about how UK priorities may differ from those of the EU?
– What would an independent UK trade policy mean for the EU?
