star this property answer text <p>The Civitas report aims to identify whether there are advantages to the UK of being an ‘EU insider’ in terms of setting the rules of the Single Market. The report focuses on growth in UK exports as the measure of this benefit. It does not account for the broader positive impacts of the Single Market on the UK, including enhanced competition and innovation at home.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The report refers to Switzerland as an example of a county that has negotiated Free trade Agreements (FTA) as a non-member of the EU. The impact on the UK’s exports of withdrawal from the EU would depend on whether the UK could negotiate similar trade agreements’ to those it currently has as a member of the EU. It would also depend on the FTA that it could negotiate with the EU itself. Switzerland has to pay to be part of the EU single market and to negotiate sector by sector, but does not determine the rules.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p> </p><p /> <p>The Department conducts Impact Assessments of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) between the European Union (EU) and other major economies, including, as far as possible, impacts on United Kingdom (UK) trade. Impact Assessments have been published on the FTAs between the European Union and Korea; and between the EU and the Andean countries (Colombia and Peru). These are available at <a href="http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukia/2010/328/pdfs/ukia_20100328_en.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukia/2010/328/pdfs/ukia_20100328_en.pdf</a> and <a href="http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukia/2013/151/pdfs/ukia_20130151_en.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukia/2013/151/pdfs/ukia_20130151_en.pdf</a>.</p><p /> <p> </p><p /> <p> </p><p /> <p> </p><p /> <p>The Department published research into the potential impact on the UK of an FTA between the EU and the United States (US) in 2013. This research has informed the Government’s approach to the Transatlantic Trade &amp; Investment Partnership (TTIP), currently under negotiation. This research estimates a long-term permanent annual increase in bilateral trade between the UK and US of around £38 billion. The study is available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/198115/bis-13-869-economic-impact-on-uk-of-tranatlantic-trade-and-investment-partnership-between-eu-and-us.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/198115/bis-13-869-economic-impact-on-uk-of-tranatlantic-trade-and-investment-partnership-between-eu-and-us.pdf</a>.</p><p /> <p> </p><p /> <p> </p><p /> <p> </p><p /> <p>To assess the impacts of other FTAs on the UK, the Department draws on analysis conducted by the European Commission. The European Commission has conducted research into the estimated impact on the EU of FTAs it has negotiated and is negotiating on the UK’s behalf. The studies also consider the impact of FTAs on bilateral trade. These Impact Assessments are available at: <a href="http://ec.europa.eu/trade/policy/policy-making/analysis/sustainability-impact-assessments/assessments/" target="_blank">http://ec.europa.eu/trade/policy/policy-making/analysis/sustainability-impact-assessments/assessments/</a></p><p /> <p> </p><p /> <p> </p><p /> <p> </p><p /> <p>The European Commission has also commissioned an evaluation of the impact on EU trade of several Free Trade Agreements concluded since 1992, including with Chile and South Africa. This found that the FTA with Chile had increased the EU’s exports to Chile by 148% and the FTA with South Africa had increased the EU’s exports to South Africa by 63% compared to what would have been without the FTAs. This study is available at: <a href="http://trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/docs/2011/may/tradoc_147905.pdf" target="_blank">http://trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/docs/2011/may/tradoc_147905.pdf</a>.</p><p /> <p> </p><p /> <p> </p><p> </p>

Services have been included in some of these agreements but not all.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The UK Government is a strong supporter of the inclusion of Services in free trade agreements, because it creates a more stable and transparent trading and investment environment for UK companies to export their Services to trading partner markets. This is why Services form a strong component in our modern trade agreements such as with Canada, Korea and Singapore. It will also feature strongly in the EU’s upcoming agreements with Vietnam and the United States (TTIP). Many of these agreement are very ambitious covering areas often not included in traditional agreements and reflecting the range of trade carried out by the EU.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The EU is committed to the inclusion on Services in its negotiations and has fully supported the establishment of the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA).

star this property answer text <p><strong></strong></p><p>The recent EU Trade Strategy emphasised the EU’s engagement in deepening and rebalancing our relationship with China in a mutually beneficial way. The ongoing negotiation of a bilateral investment agreement is the top priority towards this objective and will bring substantial benefits for both the UK and the EU. The UK Government fully supports the ambition of further deepening the EU-China relationship through an FTA. Whilst no formal assessment has yet been made to ascertain the impact of an FTA with China we anticipate the benefits will be significant.</p><br /> more like this
