star this property answer text <p>The UK is firmly of the belief that trade has a key role to play in delivering the global goals and tackling poverty. That is why the Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Act enables the UK to put in place a trade preferences scheme for developing countries, granting duty-free, quota-free access to 48 Least Developing Countries and granting tariff reductions to around 25 other developing countries. This is critical to achieving Global Goal 17. It also remains the UK’s priority to replicate the effects of the EU’s Economic Partnership Agreements with African, Caribbean and Pacific countries, which includes 24 Commonwealth countries, some of whom are key cocoa producers.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to ensuring the benefits of existing EU trade agreements are maintained, providing a smooth transition as we leave the EU. The best way to provide that continuity and stability is for the UK to leave the European Union with a negotiated deal so that the UK can remain covered by all of these agreements during the proposed Implementation Period.</p><p> </p><p>Nevertheless, the Government is working to have bilateral agreements in place ready for when they are needed, whether that is in the event of no deal, or after the proposed Implementation Period. We have made good progress signing trade continuity agreements, most recently with Iceland and Norway. Trade with countries where agreements have already been signed or finalised accounts for more than half of the UK’s trade with countries for which the UK is seeking continuity.</p><p> </p><p>Many discussions with other countries are at an advanced stage. As with all such discussions, they tend to go down to the wire, and we would expect nothing less from these agreements. Each of the UK’s trade partners will have made an assessment of the likelihood of a no deal scenario, and factored in their own domestic situations, when approaching discussions of continuity with the UK.</p>
