‘UK to face challenges in post-Brexit trade talks’: Experts

Brexit

London: The UK might face huge challenges in external trade talks even if it could take control of the trade policy after Brexit, warned experts. The warning came at the second UK Trade Policy Observatory (UKTPO) conference in London Wednesday. The UKTPO is a partnership between the University of Sussex and the Royal Institute of International Affairs, commonly known as Chatham House, Xinhua news agency reported. When the UK is outside the European Union (EU), the country might have declining voice on the trade negotiation table with nations like the US, argued Peter Holmes, trade expert and Fellow of the UKTPO at the University of Sussex. Aligning British rules with those of the US would create divergences with the EU and inevitably create extra frictions at the UK-EU border. (IANS)
