star this property answer text <p>We value our international agreements and want to continue to cooperate in key global issues such as air services, trade, climate change, international development and nuclear cooperation. We have agreed with the EU that they will notify treaty partners that, during the implementation period, the UK is to be treated as a Member State for the purposes of its international agreements. This approach provides a basis for continuity across all relevant agreements.</p><p>A number of third countries (including Canada, Chile, Israel, Switzerland, South Africa, and Singapore) have welcomed the focus on delivering continuity into the implementation period. Countries are understandably waiting for the notification to be issued by the EU before they are able to confirm their clear agreement, and we are continuing to engage with them.</p><p>We are also engaging with our international partners in order to put in place arrangements that will come into force following the implementation period, and are making good progress with this work.</p><p> </p>
