We continue to discuss with Mexico how to transition the EU-Mexico Global Agreement so that it functions in a bilateral context from 1 January 2021. In August 2019 my Rt Hon Friend the Foreign Secretary (Dominic Raab) visited Mexico to sign the <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/foreign-secretary-to-sign-landmark-agreement-to-boost-economic-growth-in-uk-and-mexico" target="_blank">UK-Mexico Partnership for Sustainable and Inclusive Growth</a>.

star this property answer text <p>There are no existing trade remedies measures or ongoing investigations into the dumping of high-tech 5G network products. Trade remedies only apply to goods and not services. We have set up the UK’s trade remedies system, built on international best practice, to provide real and robust protections to UK industries which are suffering injury caused by unfair trading practices or by unforeseen surges of imports. Industry will be able to apply for an investigation, following the end of the Transition Period, and the Trade Remedies Authority will initiate an investigation provided there is sufficient evidence.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In respect of export credit guarantee instalments that have fallen due since 1970, please note the following.</p><p> </p><p>Iran: Iran has repaid principal and contractual interest in full. In alignment with other export credit agencies, UK Export Finance (UKEF) has cancelled default interest. The value of this was around £530k.</p><p> </p><p>Iraq: Under the United Kingdom/Iraq Debt Agreement No 1, which was signed in 2006 and which implemented the terms of Iraq’s 2004 multilateral Paris Club debt treatment, UKEF cancelled around £1bn of debt.</p><p> </p><p>Jordan: In 2008, following Jordan’s early repayment of its outstanding Paris Club debt, Paris Club creditors agreed a global discount of 11% for the early repayment. In line with this agreement, UKEF cancelled around £42m in debt. In addition, a number of debt conversions involving Jordan took place between 2001 and 2006 which resulted in the cancellation of around £39m of debt.</p><p> </p> more like this
