star this property answer text <p>Once the UK has left the EU, we will have the opportunity to consider how we may strengthen the UK-Canada trading relationship. We do not currently have performance targets linked to how that might be achieved through a new comprehensive free trade agreement, since our priority remains working with Canada and businesses to seek as smooth a transition of the existing trading relationship as possible as we leave the EU. This includes the transition of CETA into a UK-Canada agreement. My Rt Hon. Friend the Secretary of State for International Trade gave an update on the status of these discussions at the International Trade Committee on 3 July.</p> more like this

Additionally, at the China International Import Exposition (CIIE) in Shanghai in November 2018, the UK showcased the best in British innovation, gaining significant media attention in China. UK firms secured more than £2 billion of commercial deals across a range of sectors including creative industries, healthcare, education, energy, mining and aviation.</p>

We have completed 14-week long public consultations on each of these three potential future trade agreement negotiations and on the UK’s possible accession to the CPTPP.</p><p> </p><p>While we are looking to forge new agreements, the Government is also seeking continuity for our existing EU free trade agreements as we leave the European Union. These give us the platform to build and strengthen our already-successful trading relationships with existing countries.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, we are building stronger relationships with large economies – such as China, India, and Brazil – through a series of Joint Trade Reviews.</p>
