||<p>The Government announced the formation of the Technical Advisory Group on Alternative
Arrangements on 20 June. The group has met twice, on 20 June and 17 July, and will
continue to meet throughout August and September.</p><p>It is made up of technical
experts in trade and customs and brings together individuals from both the public
and private sector, and academia, who have expertise on issues spanning law, customs,
supply chains, cross-border trade and technology. The members represent a broad spectrum
of views and expertise, all of which will be needed to achieve our economic, fiscal
and security objectives in the unique circumstances of the Northern Ireland land border.
